    What is a Udacity course like?

    Udacity courses are highly interactive with activities, quizzes, and exercises interspersed between short videos and talks by instructors and industry experts. You can watch the videos and try the quizzes as many times as you like without any penalties. The quizzes are a tool to help you learn.

    Usually after a lesson, there will be a problem set with exercises for you to check if you have learned the material in that lesson. Problem set completion may be included in the requirements for a certificate for the course. However, just like with the quizzes, you can try them as many times as you like without penalty.
