I have been busy beta-testing course materials for several of the new offerings in the Coursera Data Science Specialization series sponsored through Johns Hopkins University. I have been involved with the Coursera MOOC platform since its beginnings in 2012. I was asked to participate in the beta test of The Data Scientist’s Toolbox, R Programming, and Getting and Cleaning Data classes.
UPDATE! 2/16/2014 – I was asked by Coursera to beta test three new classes in the Data Science Specialization: Statistical Inference, Exploratory Data Analysis, and Reproducible Research.
UPDATE! 4/15/2014 – I’m excited to be asked by Coursera to beta test the last three new classes in the Data Science Specialization: Regression Models, Practical Machine Learning, and Developing Data Products.
UPDATE! 5/27/2014 – I was asked by Coursera to serve as a Community TA for the up-coming Practical Machine Learning class starting June 2. This a great class for newbie data scientists.
The specialization series has since been publicly announced by Coursera and is now open for enrollment. Enroll now by clicking HERE.
