Introduction to R for Data Science

Written 2 years ago
A good course overall especially for novices. Material is very basic and covers only simplest data-structures and graphics. Course designed for those who can not program at all. But if you have some programming experience I would rather recommend coursera course about R.

Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects

Written 2 years ago
Easy and funny course to watch. It will not take a lot of your time. Very basic concepts that you need to remind yourself once in a while.

Processing Big Data with Hadoop in Azure HDInsight

Written 2 years ago
Good introductory course. You will learn basics things that you can do using Azure and HDInsight. If you are not familiar with clouding computing it is a good course to take.

But it really lack of good practical assignments. All the labs it has are not graded and basically are just repetition of what was shown in videos. Quizzes are pretty easy.

Fractals and Scaling

Written 2 years ago
Very nice course! Quite easy without going deep into math behind, without any computational assignments. But topic is rather interesting and explanations were very clear and with good examples. You can watch it on 1.5x speed easily.

Mining Massive Datasets

Written 2 years ago
Very interesting course covers a lot of topics. It is rather difficult and takes a lot of time (only lectures usually take around 3 hours/week and it's hard to watch them faster than 1.25x). The only disappointment for me was lectures taught by prof Ullman, was very hard to fallow his monotonic reading, other two lecturers have strong accents but were much more alive and understandable.

Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies

Written 2 years ago
Very interesting course explaining cryptocurrencies in different aspects. Highly recommended to anyone interested in bitcoins, cryptocurrencies or just normal currencies as well.

As mentioned in other comments, please, note you will not have any types of homework and will not get any statement of accomplishment.

Data Analysis and Statistical Inference

Written 2 years ago
Very time consuming course still doesn't contain any proofs. All the time spent just to make you memorise quite simple concepts but not to understand why do they work.

Don't wast your time, go through book and pdf slides and you will end up with the same knowledge many times faster.
