Alamo City R Users Group Message Board › Data Analysis Course on Coursera.org
San Antonio, TX
There is a course being offered on Coursera.org called Data Analysis. This course will be taught by Dr. Jeff Leek of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (https://www.coursera..... The following is an excerpt from the website:
"This course is an applied statistics course focusing on data analysis. The course will begin with an overview of how to organize, perform, and write-up data analyses. Then we will cover some of the most popular and widely used statistical methods like linear regression, principal components analysis, cross-validation, and p-values. Instead of focusing on mathematical details, the lectures will be designed to help you apply these techniques to real data using the R statistical programming language, interpret the results, and diagnose potential problems in your analysis. You will also have the opportunity to critique and assist your fellow classmates with their data analyses."
Alex Bokov and I are taking the course and plan on forming a group that will meet periodically to discuss course content. If you are interested in taking the course and participating in the group, let me know.
