In an effort to address the skills shortage, three-year-old Udacity (2016 CNBC Disruptor No. 12) has partnered with tech giants such as AT&T, Google, Facebook and Amazon to reinvent job training. The company — founded by Stanford professor and onetime Google VP Sebastian Thrun — has repositioned its focus from massive open online courses (MOOCs) to certification training on very specific skills. Students can earn what’s called a nanodegree and learn things like front-end web developing, iOS and Android programming, or machine learning in less than a year — and for less than $1,000.
