Course Most Recently Updated Nov/2018!
Thank you all for the huge response to this emerging course! We are delighted to have over 20,000 students in over 160 different countries. I'm genuinely touched by the overwhelmingly positive and thoughtful reviews. It's such a privilege to share and introduce this important topic with everyday people in a clear and understandable way.
I'm also excited to announce that I have created real closed captions for all course material, so weather you need them due to a hearing impairment, or find it easier to follow long (great for ESL students!)... I've got you covered.
My name is Robert Andrew and I am looking forward to being your instructor this semester.
I am a part-time teacher with BMPS via LearnNow. My educational background is in psychology (B.A.) and education (M.Ed.). The focus of both my undergraduate and graduate education has centered upon the research and investigation of particular aspects of Data Science and Machine Learning. My focus and interests have included various topics in the fields of Technology. Teaching has been a natural progression from my passion for being a student. You might say it has been my hobby for a number of years. Some people play the piano, some play a sport, and I enjoy going to school.
