Two free online courses starting soon: Data Analysis (with R) and Social Network Analysis

There are two online courses starting soon on Coursera, which are free to register.

1. Data Analysis (with R)

It is a 8-week online course starting on Jan 22nd 2013 <https://www.coursera.org/course/dataanalysis>.

This course is an applied statistics course focusing on data analysis. The course will begin with an overview of how to organize, perform, and write-up data analyses. Then it will cover some of the most popular and widely used statistical methods like linear regression, principal components analysis, cross-validation, and p-values. Instead of focusing on mathematical details, the lectures will be designed to help you apply these techniques to real data using the R statistical programming language, interpret the results, and diagnose potential problems in data analysis.

2. Social Network Analysis

It is a 9-week online course starting on March 4th 2013 <https://www.coursera.org/course/sna>.

This course will use social network analysis, both its theory and computational tools, to make sense of the social and information networks that have been fueled and rendered accessible by the internet.
