Pro Courses are easy to understand

You get actual feedback from developers on your code, which is useful. Yes having your sites/apps do what it is supposed to do is important, but you need feedback to learn industry standards/best practices and other gotchas that are much harder to learn on your own.
Con Not very user-friendly
The website has an unappealing design that makes navigating and searching through topics feel not intuitive.
Con Nanodegrees are expensive
Udacity is quite expensive at $200/month if you want to do a nanodegree.
