A Colorado university is announcing on Thursday that it will give full transfer credit to students who complete a free introductory computer-science course offered by the online-education start-up company Udacity.
The announcement, by Colorado State University’s Global Campus, is a milestone for the Stanford University spinoff.
This is the first time a university in the United States has offered academic credit for a Udacity course, although several universities in Austria and Germany already do.
A small, but important, detail is that the Colorado State University Global Campus is the online parallel of that bricks and mortar institution. I do not know the relationship between the virtual and physical at that university. Are they separate? Are they equal?
