Big video news everywhere you look: AT&T partnering with Udacity for “The Future of Work,” Bill Maurer on currency for “Built on Blockchain,” and more!

Sep 14, 2018 · 2 min read

What a week! BIG video releases all over the place. Quick, look over there! What is it? It’s the new “Future of Work” video from AT&T and Udacity!

“We’ve put Udacity graduates in many different roles such as full-stack development, front-end, back-end, & iOS development; they’ve succeeded in all of these places … Whether those Nanodegree graduates have formal STEM education or not, Udacity has prepared them for their internship, and our colleagues in other parts of the business have been pleased with the results.” — Teresa Ostapower, Senior Vice President, Technology Transformation, AT&T

Great to see this story covered by ElearningInside News, who make a critical observation when highlighting AT&T’s initial decision to partner with Udacity:

“Since then, the company has successfully reskilled and upskilled thousands of employees. In the process, AT&T has also provided evidence that today’s disrupted economy doesn’t need to result in massive layoffs for workers who were originally hired on the basis of their 20th-century skills.”

And, in other video-related news … is that what I think it is? You bet it is! It’s the new Built on Blockchain documentary series, complete with an amazing interview with Bill Maurer on the history and future of currency!

And the video news just keeps getting better! Look, we have a winner for our KUKA Robotics Challenge!

And with that, it’s time for …

The Tweet(s) of the Week!

In keeping with our video focus, we’d live to share two wonderful videos from our colleagues at Udacity India!

And THAT … is This Week at Udacity!
