Course Overview

Data literacy involves articulating a problem that can potentially be solved using data. Most importantly, it is about interpreting the results of an analysis and making decisions based on the gained insights. A data literate person would have the ability to understand and check the adequacy of the data involved. Ultimately, you should be able to read and derive valuable information from data. We will cover all these topics extensively in the course.

Yh, your courses are explicitly great such hard work is being put in here. I tremendously appreciate them. But as a level 4 course reader now I have some recommendations that could better ease our understanding of the course materials. 1. I understand that animation presentations of lectures are a faster way and quite a good teaching method.. but when I did the Python Bootcamp it was quite better because I felt like someone was talking to me. Hence, I will appreciate it if the tutors showcase themselves as we move through the courses. 2. Although we have practical examples I will love if real-life projects and videos of how workers in the company discuss and solve them, they should be shown or even as a data major intern goes to work and his job descriptions at the office this help us to prepare for the working environment. More projects and problems faced by companies in each course. Thanks. 3. Take us out of the learning environment sometimes surveying companies and showing us how the data is collected.
Really useful course.👍🏽🤝 It shines a light on some of the concepts mentioned in the “Introduction to Data Science” course. It gives a clear explanation of the course outline, adding a few insights whilst he explains, and as you progress through the list of videos the structure of how data is Accessed, Updated and Managed becomes more and more clear. It is mandatory if you want to understand the bigger picture of the Organisational Side of this industry.Ⓜ️❕ Beautifully done. ✅ ✨
This is a very good introductory course to the nature of data and how data are used in industry. It is comprehensive and suitable for students new to AI/ML/DS. Its core value lies in the section on interpretation, which basically functions as a primer to a statistics course. As such, it should also serve nicely as a refresher even for those more experienced in the field.
I feel he's glossing over things that are important to the ethics of data, i.e. suggesting that veracity isn't important to bid data or only briefly mentioning the job of verifying and validating data. Ethics in data is really important, and it needs to be taught to all individuals pursuing any career that uses data.
Till now the course has been good but still many things to come and I need to see more specific training to judge better. The level of detail that they are going to teach is very important which will remain for the later sessions of the course. hope it works.
