PRLog - Jan. 27, 2014 - FARIDABAD, India -- A study conducted by Udacity has brought interesting statistics to light, according to which students participating in a MOOC fare better as compared to their counterparts following the same course offline. The study was conducted in Stanford University. A few other courses also seem to be doing well in this regard.

The scores for a group of around 200 students from Stanford and some 23000 students enrolled for Udacity MOOCs were compared for the same course. It was found that the top 412 ranks were captured in totality by the MOOC aspirants. The top ranker for Stanford came in next at 413. CEO Sebastian Thrun attributed the exclusivity of world famous universities such as Stanford as an impediment in finding, educating and training the best talent around the globe, while admitting that the universities are nonetheless the ‘world’s best system’.

Elsewhere, Udacity’s introductory computer science courses which teach students how to build a search engine, had students coming up with innovative ideas on how to bring up better search results. Some of them were even discussed with employees from a major search engine company and they thought the results were amazing. Yet another course, in which Google engineers themselves taught students how to build online games using HTML5, has helped give rise to a number of startups.
