Simply Statistics A statistics blog by Rafa Irizarry, Roger Peng, and Jeff Leek

Computing for Data Analysis starts today!

Today marks the first Simply Statistics course offering happening over at Coursera. I’ll be teaching Computing for Data Analysis over the next four weeks. There’s still plenty of time to register if you are interested in learning about R and the activity on the discussion forums is already quite vibrant.

Also starting today is my colleague Brian Caffo’s Mathematical Biostatistics Bootcamp, which I hear also has had an energetic start. With any luck, the students in that class may get to see Brian dressed in military fatigues.

This is my first MOOC so I have no idea how it will go. But I’m excited to start and am looking forward to the next four weeks.
