I've started taking a couple of Coursera specialization tracts:
Data Science - Johns Hopkins https://www.coursera.org/specialization/jhudatascience/1
Data Mining - UIUC (edit: was Johns Hopkins - bad copy/paste) https://www.coursera.org/specialization/datamining/20
There are more specializations that you can get here: https://www.coursera.org/specializations
It's kind of a layer on top of the free courses. I've been pleased so far. They'll also look nice in the education section of your resume, if you care about that.
⬐ ojbyrneThe Data Mining one is from UIUC.⬐ strictnein⬐ acconradYou're correct. Bad copy/paste on my part.Will they actually? Are employers starting to value Coursera courses as valuable educational experience?⬐ strictneinNot sure about the individual courses, but I've seen the certified tracts mentioned in job descriptions, most recently in some data science positions.
