Welcome to this week’s Coffee Break!

It’s been a big week for us at Udacity, what with our HTML5 Game Development certificate program launch, announcing our collaboration with Georgia Tech and AT&T to offer an Online Masters Degree in Computer Science, and debuting our I/O course.

Whew, that’s a full week! The buzz around these new developments has been tremendously encouraging — thank you for all of your support in these new adventures.

For this week’s Coffee Break installment, Sebastian talks with fellow Udacian, Clarissa, about the Online Masters Degree, as well as course certificate alternatives for students who aren’t interested in the entire degree.

For more thoughts from Sebastian, be sure to read his blog post reflecting on MOOCs, empowerment and education.

Happy Friday and Happy Coffee Break!
