How about an online offering?


Ron: It's been on my to-do list but probably not coming soon. It actually takes a lot of time to develop a good on-line course. I don't like the ones where they just videotape your on-site class; I want to do recordings specifically for the on-line audience. We are talking months of full-time work for a college-length class.

I do have a short course up and running here. As you will see, the recording can be improved. (This is how I figured out it needed months of work to do it right!)


I agree with Ron, an online version would be great. I started the Data Science Specialization on Coursera and I really like it, but it's missing a lot on the Data Visualization side.

I realize that this is a lot of work and maybe not compatible with the case approach. Let us know if we can help ...
