    Available courses

    Aim of Course:

    This course describes how the safety of clinical trials in the pharmaceutical industry is assured through Data and Safety Monitoring Committees (DMC's).

    Aim of Course:

    This course will explain the basic theory of linear and non-linear mixed effects models, including hierarchical linear models. It will outline the algorithms used for estimation, primarily for models involving normally distributed errors, and will provide examples of data analysis. The course aims at providing a basic understanding and knowledge of the mixed effect models that will allow you to use them in practice.

    Aim of Course:

    This course, the second in a three-course sequence, provides an easy introduction to inference and association through a series of practical applications, based on the resampling/simulation approach.

    Aim of Course:

    In this online course, you will learn how to examine data with the goal of detecting anomalies or abnormal instances. This task is critical in a wide range of applications ranging from fraud detection to surveillance.


    Aim of Course:

    This course covers the application of Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques (MCMC) to Bayesian statistical modeling using WinBUGS software.

    Aim of Course:

    After successfully completing this course, you will understand the role that MLE plays in statistical models, and be able to assess both the advantages and disadvantages of using a maximum likelihood estimate in a particular situation.

    Aim of Course:

    Try out our introductory statistics series for one week - you can learn stats!

    Aim of Course:

    This course will stress the application of DOE rather than statistical theory. With a 12-step checklist, it covers full and fractional factorial designs, Plackett-Burman, Box-Behnken, Box-Wilson and Taguchi designs.

    Aim of Course:

    This course will offer an introduction to sample size and power analysis and will show how to use it simply and effectively to plan the appropriate sample size for a study.

    Aim of Course:

    This course covers key unsupervised learning techniques: association rules, principal components analysis, and clustering. The course will include an integration of supervised and unsupervised learning techniques.

    Aim of Course:

    This course covers key unsupervised learning techniques: association rules, principal components analysis, and clustering. The course will include an integration of supervised and unsupervised learning techniques.

    Aim of Course:

    This course will cover the analysis of contingency table data (tabular data in which the cell entries represent counts of subjects or items falling into certain categories).

    Aim of Course:

    This course, the second in a three-course sequence, provides an easy introduction to inference and association through a series of practical applications, based on the resampling/simulation approach.

    Aim of Course:

    The aim of the course is to give you the skills to work with a variety of data types and data sources in R.

    Aim of Course:

    To provide an easy introduction to statistical inference for a single variable.

    Aim of Course:

    After taking this course, you will be able to install and run rjags, a program for Bayesian analysis within R.  Using R and rjags, you will learn how to specify and run Bayesian modeling procedures using regression models for continuous, count and categorical data.

    Aim of Course:

    This course will teach you how to choose an appropriate time series
    forecasting method, fit the model, evaluate its performance, and
    use it for forecasting.

    Aim of Course:

    The purpose of this online course is to teach you how to extract data from a relational database using SQL, so that you can perform statistical operations.  The focus is on structuring queries to extract structured data (not on building databases or methods of handling big data).

    Aim of Course:

    After completing this course, students will be able to use R to summarize and graph data, calculate confidence intervals, test hypotheses, assess goodness-of-fit, and perform linear regression. This is a course to "Learn R via your existing knowledge of basic statistics" and does not treat statistical concepts in depth. Be sure to read the prerequisites.

    Aim of Course:

    This course covers the crafting of survey questions, the design of surveys, and different sampling procedures that are used in practice. Longstanding basic principles of survey design are covered, and the impact of the trend toward increased respondent resistance is discussed.
