Online course on forecasting using R

September 10, 2013

(This article was first published on Hyndsight » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I am teaming up with Revolution Analytics to teach an online course on forecasting with R. Topics to be covered include seasonality and trends, exponential smoothing, ARIMA modelling, dynamic regression and state space models, as well as forecast accuracy methods and forecast evaluation techniques such as cross-validation. I will talk about some of my consulting experiences, and explain the tools in the forecast package for R.

The course will run from 21 October to 4 December, for two hours each week. Participants can network and interact with other practitioners through an online community.


I will assume you already know how to use R. If you don’t, you can quickly get up to speed by doing a few online tutorials.

I will also assume that you know some basic statistics, including multiple regression. However, you will not need to know any time series or forecasting.
