Udacity’s mobile learning app is now available on Google Play for Android devices, giving aspiring programmers easy access to their courses, which focus on making higher education more accessible and more affordable for students.

Udacity’s courses are taught by industry veterans from Facebook, Google, Cloudera and MongoDB, and range in topics from an introduction to computer science to HTML5 game development, cryptography, algebra and beyond.

The Udacity for Android app gives users a classroom that’s accessible wherever they go, so long as they have access to the internet. Users can stream lectures to their device, and challenge their knowledge with quizzes as they continue to learn.

The Android app has been built specifically with varying screen sizes in mind, to take advantage of the full screen real estate on larger Android devices, while also not sacrificing quality on smaller screens.

An offline mode will be released in a future update, giving Android users the ability to download their course videos and view them even while offline.

In addition to this Android launch, Udacity has announced four new courses with Google concerning Android fundamentals, cloud fundamentals, UX fundamentals and web performance. More information on these courses and the entire Udacity platform is available on the company’s website.
