Free data science courses from Johns Hopkins, Duke, Stanford

See on Scoop.itData Nerd’s Corner

If you’ve thought about trying to boost your data skills, check out Coursera’s catalog of free classes. In particular, Johns Hopkins is about to start a nine-class specialization in data science.

Carla Gentry CSPO‘s insight:

This spring, Johns Hopkins’ data science specialization gets underway. It’s nine classes, the first of which begins April 7 (repeat sessions are also offered during the next few months). Students can earn an optional "Verified Certificate," which costs $49 for each of the nine courses. Those who complete all nine courses plus a final capstone project — and pay for a certificate for each — will earn a Specialization Certificate from Johns Hopkins.

But — to reiterate — any of the nine courses can be taken for free if you don’t mind skipping the certificates.

The professors for Johns Hopkins’ data science specialization include: Brian Caffo, professor in the department of biostatistics; Roger Peng, associate professor of biostatistics; and Jeff Leek, assistant professor of biostatistics.
