Udacity Connect is a powerful opportunity to quicken your progress towards graduation. The benefits of face-to-face learning—interactive feedback, group accountability, goal setting and monitoring—have a significant impact on both the speed and quality of your work. Adding UConnect to your self-paced Nanodegree studies intensifies your commitment, and expedites your success.
Each weekly session is overseen by a trained session lead who organizes your group, sets and monitors goals, and connects individually with you to answer questions, conquer challenges, and provide resources.
Our studies, testing, and data make clear that adding face-to-face learning to self-paced Nanodegree studies accelerates progress significantly. Current results show a 30 percent increase in project submissions, with students three times more likely to complete their Nanodegree programs with UConnect.
The fact that I had to report to my session lead each Saturday drove me to work faster on my Nanodegree. The discipline and motivation pushed me to get my work done.

If you cannot make a session, let your Session Lead know beforehand to ensure that your absence is excused by emailing email@example.com. If you have more than 2 consecutive unexcused absences, your spot will be forfeited so that other students can join.
We're very excited to expand to other cities, and will update students when new cities launch.

And, please know that international is coming as well! Stay tuned for additional details.

Our studies have shown us that students can significantly accelerate their success by adding face-to-face learning sessions to their independent, self-paced Nanodegree program studies. We created Udacity Connect for those students who wish to pursue accelerated success.
