The First Cohort of the Georgia Tech Online Computer Science Massive Masters Program

by Carl Straumsheim, Inside Higher Ed

The Georgia Institute of Technology has admitted its first 401 students to the low-cost online master’s degree program in computer science created in partnership with massive open online course provider Udacity, and the January launch will be the first step toward seeing how scalable such a program can be. The pilot launches Jan. 14, 2014, and may enroll as many as 10,000 students over the next few years. “We will judiciously increase the size,” said Zvi Galil, dean of College of Computing. Degree-seeking students may in the future number in the several hundreds, not thousands, he said, but at this point the university is operating on “assumptions on scalability, and nobody really knows.”
