Udacity is launching a data-science curriculum with the support of companies including Cloudera, MongoDB and AT&T, who hope to equip potential hires and/or train existing employees with skills for dealing with big data.

This is the first big initiative of the online education company’s newfound focus on tech careers, beyond the massive open online courses (MOOCs) that famously attract lots of signups but have low completion and pass rates.

Starting in January, Udacity plans to offer paid options for its data-science classes that include mentoring, code reviews and the potential for a completion certificate, in addition to the free course materials.
