Learn by doing

You probably did not learn how to ride the bike by reading a book, or by watching a movie. The same is true for R and data science. You learn-by-doing. Each swirl lesson focuses on solving data science problems via fun coding challenges.

Real Life Environment

Tomorrow you need to tackle real-life data science problems, so today you need to practice in a real-life environment. Therefore, each course takes place in an online version of the RStudio IDE, R’s most popular integrated development environment.

Flip the cards

Learning shouldn’t be dull. That’s why we did our best to make the learning experience as engaging and interactive as possible. Get your assignments in bite-size chunks, and work your way through the cards while learning one of the most fundamental job skills of the future.Discover it yourself.
