R programming language: course available 24-7 online!

RData-segment_2bData Analysis and Visualization Using R: an introductory R programming course available online 24-7 through Princeton Coursera to current Princeton University community members around the globe.

Sometimes you need an R programming lesson on a Tuesday at 12:00am, or 1:00pm on a Sunday. What to do? Princeton Quantitative and Computational Biology graduate students David Robinson and Neo Christopher Chung, in association with Princeton Online/Princeton University Coursera, have created a multi-lesson searchable course based on the successful introductory R programming workshops taught by both Robinson and Chung over the past two years for the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning and the J Street Library and Media Center.

The course is currently only available to current Princeton University members with a NetID, and does not appear on the Princeton University Coursera webpage.  Check out the course using the Princeton link, and login using your NetID and password.
