Google MOOC: Making Sense of Data

February 26th, 2014

Google is offering a free, online MOOC style course on ‘Making Sense of Data‘ from March 18 to April 4 taught by Amit Deutsch (Google) and Joe Hellerstein (Berkeley).

Interestingly, it doesn’t require programming or database skills: “Basic familiarity with spreadsheets and comfort using a web browser is recommended. Knowledge of statistics and experience with programming are not required.” The course will use Google’s Fusion Tables service for managing and visualizing data
