Udacity will charge students who want a certificate


Udacity, one of the big three MOOC providers, will no longer give learners free, “non-verified” certificates.

People will still be able to view Udacity’s online course materials without paying. However, those who want a credential will be charged.

Lately Udacity has been designing courses at a cost of $150 per month that include contact with human coaches, project-based assignments, and job-placement services.
