We are a faculty team aiming to bring Applied Data Science with Python skills to everyone through a Coursera specialization this fall AMA!
My short bio: There’s a big team behind this University of Michigan Coursera specialization and we want to share with you what we’re doing to bring applied data science and python skills to everyone! From pedagogy and technology through to curricular design and content please feel free to ask us anything! Want to know why we think python is great for data science? Or what it takes to put a MOOC together?
