Today I have decided to start my Distance learning Journey with Udacity, I have worked my way through numerous MOOC sites, such as FutureLearn, Open, Edx and COursera and have not looked at Udacity until now.
Each program Udacity offers is designed to help you achieve goals, meet objectives, and succeed in your life and career. Whether you have a specific job in mind or want to learn specific skills, the best way to decide is to envision your desired outcome, and then select the path that will get you there. Sometimes this is easy—you want to build Android apps, you take the Android Developer program! But if you’re not sure, they can guide you in the right direction. Thier blog is a great resource for career pathing, and you can always email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Where they will learn about your interests, your goals, and your experience, and make personalized recommendations on the best ways to move forward.
For starters, I will be doing the various free courses:
- Intro to Computer Science (Free)
- Intro to Machine learning (Free)
- Intro to Descriptive Statistics (Free)
- Intro to Inferential Statistics (Free)
- Linear Algebra Refresher Course (Free)
- Intro to Java Programming (Free)
After that, I plan to take the Intro to Programming Nanodegree. Where I will gain a refresher on web development and get a solid foundation on python and it’s syntax. Through this course, I will also build a coding portfolio. This course currently costs $299 (normal price $399).
Once I complete this I will have a few options. I am leaning more towards Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Engineering.
Further Courses I am looking at:
- Machine Learning Engineer (£150pm)
- Artificial Intelligence ($800 per term)
- Deep Learning Foundations (Comming Soon)
- Data Analyst (£150pm)
- Full Stack Web Developer (£150pm)
- Front-End Web Developer (£150pm)
Follow me on my journey and progress.
Along with all this, I will be doing side courses at Edx and Coursera, Continue blogging about cyber security and continue with my Open University Degree.
