Coursera Data Analysis MOOC: Wrap-Up

The Coursera Data Analysis MOOC has concluded. You can read my earlier posts on the course (first impressions, half-time, graduation).

If you're interested in the course content then it's been made public. The video lectures have been published to Prof. Jeff Leek's YouTube channel, and the slide decks can be downloaded from GitHub.

Jeff was interviewed by Roger Peng on the Simply Statistics podcast, in which he reflects on his experience of the MOOC.

  • 5,500 completed & graded assignments
