Looking ahead, I'm setting myself some personal learning outcomes to measure achievement:
- To learn more about the Coursera model by taking this course (and comparing with Social Network Analysis starting later this month) especially after my unhappy Udacity experience.
- To improve my R skills by seeing how other people use it and teach it. I wouldn't have done just another statistics course, R was the hook for me on this one.
I plan to blog weekly reflections as I did with the Udacity course. There are over 75k participants enrolled, based on 10-20% completion rates for xMOOCs, so 7-10k will complete?
But will I?
