R For Researchers - Using RStudio for Data Exploration

This course covers the tools and commands you need to start a project, import and format data, create tables and graphs, do version control, and get results into documents with markdown. This course uses RStudio's integrated development environment (IDE). IDE is a fancy name for a set of tools that are designed to work together. The IDE is a useful enhancement to R and you will be more effective in R by using it.

No prior knowledge of R is required for this class. But if you have done some R programming and are looking to expand your knowledge, this just might be what you need. Also, if you are an experienced R user and have not stated using RStudio yet, this would also be an opportunity to learn what RStudio has to offer and get some exposure to using it. If you?re just trying to get through a statistics course this class will likely teach you more than you need, but the time spent will make your course easier while also preparing you to do research later.
