Online classes are an easy and convenient way to learn more about a topic of interest. Not surprisingly, there are a variety of online resources, free and otherwise, to learn more about R. From online graduate classes, to the more “learn at your own pace” approach, here are some resources I have found useful:

Programming R – Beginner to advanced resources for the R programming language – Variety of courses including beginner and advance topics in R

  • Programming in R – Intermediate level programming
  • R graphics – Learn to fully customize plots and graphics
  • ggplot2 – In depth course taught by Dr. Hadley Wickham

University of Washington – Certificate in Computational Finance with R Programming

Carnegie Mellon – Open and Free Courses including teaching Statistics with R

Penn State – Online Learning through the Department of Statistics
