It was last spring when Georgia Tech rocked the higher ed world.
In January 2014, in collaboration with AT&T and the educational organization Udacity, it introduced the Online Master of Science in Computer Science (OMSCS) — a degree from a No. 9-ranked computer science graduate program at one of America’s top 10 public universities — all for just an approximate cost of $6,600.
Despite the many skeptics, one year later the program is in full swing, with about 2,000 students enrolled. And there’s glowing feedback to go along with the impressive enrollment.
