I don't care whether Udacity is acquired by upGrad (described in Wikipedia as "which is one of the largest Online Education companies in India - focused on the higher Education and Specialization sector"). It was a bit interesting that "it was reported that upGrad is likely to acquire Udacity for around US$80 million." This is a far cry from the juggernaut Udacity was supposed to become when it was first founded by some Stanford professors." Meanwhile, even though it doesn't have a Wikipedia article of its own (natch) I'm going to follow what upGrad is up to a little more closely from now on (though it doesn't encourage me that upGrad has a blog but no RSS feed).
