In this post I present a 34-minute video on using R. The video is based on an analysis of 1924 to 2006 Winter Olympic Medals that I presented previously in text form. The video aims to to show what an interactive session in R might look like using StatET and Eclipse.
Introductory ThoughtsI recently posted a set of links to instructional videos on using R. The post received 1800 pageviews in ten days. Given the demand, I thought that instead of just linking to videos, I should be making them.
Videos seem to complement text-based instruction. Particular benefits include:
- demonstrating how to verbalise and pronounce R code,
- providing a visual demonstration of how software interaction actually occurs,
- showing how a data analyst thinks about analysis with R in real time, and
- helping learners who prefer to learn through videos.
I’ll post future videos to http://jeromyanglim.blogspot.com. If you want to be notified of new posts, the RSS feed is: https://feeds.feedburner.com/jeromyanglim
Finally, if you use R, it’d be great to see a video of what you are doing.
The VideoGiven YouTube’s 10 minute file rule, the video is split into four parts.
