Google has launched its own Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to teach the general public how to understand surveys, research, and data. Called “Making Sense of Data” and running from March 18 to April 4, the course will be open to the public and, like most MOOCs, will be taught through a series of video lectures, interactive projects, and the support of community TAs. Users who complete the final capstone homework assignment will even have the option of receiving a certificate of completion. See http://goo.gl/e914ik for more information and a YouTube video introducing the course.
