One of the best MOOCs I have taken so far. It especially helps if you are thinking about a career change or learning something new. If you are in this situation, I strongly encourage you to take this course.

Introduction to Analytics Modeling

Written 4 months ago
I just finished this course as a verified learner. The content is excellent (5 stars), but for two reasons my overall evaluation of the course is a 4 stars:

This is the first time this course is offered via edX, and there were many technical glitches. But course staff was very responsive, and I assume that these problems will be fixed in future versions of the course.

The course announcement wasn't clear about required knowledge and skills to take the course. Most homework requires proficiency in R.

A positive point was the very active Slack group of students, which helped a lot. (The edX forum, on the other hand, was difficult to use.)

Bottom line is, this course is extremely interesting, one of the best I have ever taken, very ambitious with the topics covered. You will enjoy the course if you have basic proficiency in R.

Computing for Data Analysis

Written 3 weeks ago
I dropped out of this course after four weeks, for personal reasons (travel, work). The course was very demanding, but interesting. However, course support was not sufficient. Recitations with tutors were offered, but suitable only for American time zones. Although a second recitation time slot was announced, this was not accessible for edX students. As I found the course very interesting, I will probably give it another try in the future; but I hope the support for edX students will be better.

Introduction to Computing using Python

Written 3 weeks ago
This course is really great, especially if you are new to coding or to Python. It advances very slowly, with a lot of practice in Python, and it's really fun! I'm actually sad it's over, and I'm looking for the next Python course.
