Google est une entreprise fondée le 4 septembre 1998 dans le garage Google dans la Silicon Valley, en Californie, par Larry Page et Sergueï Brin, créateurs du moteur de recherche Google.

L'entreprise s'est principalement fait connaître à travers la situation monopolistique de son moteur de recherche, concurrencé historiquement par AltaVista puis par Yahoo! et Bing. Elle a ensuite procédé à de nombreuses acquisitions et développements et détient aujourd'hui de nombreux logiciels et sites web notables parmi lesquels YouTube, le système d'exploitation pour téléphones mobiles Android, ainsi que d'autres services tels que Google Earth, Google Maps ou Google Play.


Udacity est une entreprise fondé par Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, et Mike Sokolsky offrant cours en ligne ouvert et massif.

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.
