Computing for Data Analysis @ Johns Hopkins University

On 24th of September starts the 4 weeks long introduction course Computing for Data Analysis on the Johns Hopkins University. It’s a small introduction into programming in and working with R, data analyses and using of statistical methods.

How it works

The course will consist of lecture videos broken into 8-10 minute segments. There will be two large programming assignments that will be graded. There will be approximately 3 hours of video content per week.

We will meet 1-2 times a week to watch & learn together, but how we manage this depends on the participating people’s needs and choice. The learning group can use Spektral for the learning session, but it’s not limited to it (i. e. learning at flats). This all will be discussed on the mailinglist and organized by doodles week by week.


Just subscribe to the Mailingliste and you are part of the learning group of the Freie Universität course in spektral. For taking part on coursera, please follow the instructions on their website.

This course will be held in English, so also international students are very welcome.

Open Science Partnership

Members of the Open Science Project are also attending the course, so the whole exercises and experiences will be documented and done in a free and open way. Interested in doing it the open science way? Then look at their Open Science Page for this Lecture and join them too.
