What’s happening in online education?

This has been a pretty exciting and controversial week for online education. For starters, Starbucks announced its partnership with ASU and Udacity followed with an announcement about nano degrees. Meanwhile, Google invests $50m in getting girls into code (with the help of Chelsea Clinton and Mindy Kaling) and Anita Sarkeesian continues her excellent series on women in video games with a new video. Plus, the world gets introduced to a programming language based on Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yes, really.
