Udacity est une entreprise fondé par Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, et Mike Sokolsky offrant massives des cours en ligne ouverts (MOOCs).
Selon Thrun, l'origine du nom Udacity vient de la volonté de l'entreprise d'être "audacieux pour vous, l'étudiant ". Bien que Udacity se concentrait à l'origine sur une offre de cours universitaires, la plateforme se concentre désormais plus sur de formations destinés aux professionnels.
