Okay, so awhile ago, I completed this course. I promised to come back and give my take on it.

I found the site to be easily navigated. The course material wasn't too far advanced that someone without prior knowledge would definitely be able to grasp every concept put forth.

Even if you are familiar with the information, you still learn quite a lot.

The video lectures were broken up, no more than 10mins each with the ability to download and watch at your own convenience.

There was a multiple choice test after each week based on the material presented and I found them neither too difficult or too easy.

Overall, an exceptional experience and I have looked into taking further courses from this site.

Thanks for all the great responses and if anyone has taken or is taking courses from this site, let us know how your experience was.

I didn't say you'd get a job out of it, but there are some of us that love to expand our knowledge in a multitude of areas for personal satisfaction and not just for monetary gain.

Some of us know how to "read between the lines".

Bump for quality information.

Reminded me to sign up (I have seen this before a month ago and meant to sign up for upcoming computer/data analysis courses). Plan on using to spruce up my knowledge and advance my R programming skills.

Great thing to take advantage of!

 Quoting: Angel Lust


You get a certificate of completion, but no, it doesn't count as it would if you went to Harvard and such paying for it. I'm thankful this FREE option is still there, nothing wrong with putting it on your resume for a related field. Shows you've got good worth and up for continuous personal improvement and growth.

These free courses could be used to an advantage at the community and university level. You could take the free course then test out of the "real" course. Saves time & money.
