Announcing: DataCamp for the classroom, a new free plan for Academics.

We want to support every student that wants to learn Data Science. That is why, as of today, professors/teachers/TA’s/… can give their students 6 months of FREE access to the full DataCamp course curriculum when used in the classroom. Request your free classroom today.

1) Student Benefits

When you set-up your DataCamp for the classroom account, each student will automatically have full access to the entire course curriculum (>250 hours). This includes access to premium courses such as:

In addition, students can participate in leaderboards and private discussion forums with their fellow classmates. 

2) Professor/Instructors/Teacher/… Benefits

Via DataCamp for the classroom, the instructor has access to all our handy group features: 

  • Progress Tracking: Track each of your student’s progress in detail. You can see for example how many XP points they have gained, the number of courses completed and total chapters finished.

  • Assignments & Deadlines: Save yourself time via automated grading. Automatically set homework using assignment and deadlines throughout the semester. 

  • Export Data: Get all of your student’s data via the export functionality. See in depth how active students are on DataCamp, when they started and completed chapters, and use this data to make your own analysis.

  • Learning Management System Integration: Seamlessly integrate DataCamp with your universities learning management system (Sakai, Blackboard, Canvas…). Automatically send student assignment completion data where it is expected to be found.
