ARC: Connections: ELMAR: Posting
The non-profit Information Institute (http://www.information-institute.org) and faculty from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) are offering two live, interactive, synchronous online summer courses: (1) Using R for Statistical Research Analyses (June 30, July 14, 21, August 11 and 18); and (2) Using R for PLS Path Modeling (June 27, July 11, 18, 25, and August 8). Both courses are each offered in the AM and PM to be available live in all time zones. Early registration costs (through May 27) for either course is $250 USD faculty; $195 students; and $295 practitioner. All live, interactive class sessions are also recorded and provided to participants for their repeated post-class review.
- Using R for Statistical Research Analyses I: This course demonstrates how to use R to conduct a broad range of statistical analyses for publishable research. The AM course is offered online on non-consecutive Thursdays (June 30, July 7 and 14, August 11 and 18 at 11AM-2PM ET). The informational and registration site for the AM course is here: https://www.regonline.com/SRA-july-AM. There is also a section of this online course for the Pacific Rim countries on Thursday evenings (same dates at 6PM-9PM ET). The informational and registration site for the PM course is here: https://www.regonline.com/SRA-july-PM.
- PLS Path Modeling with R: Participants learn basic and intermediate techniques for conducting PLS path modeling using R. The AM course is conducted online in five separate weekly Monday classes (June 27, July 11, 18, 25, and August 8 at 11AM-2PM ET). The informational and registration site for the AM course is here: https://www.regonline.com/R-plspm-july-AM. There is an additional section of this online course for the Pacific Rim countries on Friday evenings (same dates at 6PM-9PM ET). The informational and registration site for the PM course is here: https://www.regonline.com/R-plspm-july-PM.
The R Project for Statistical Computing provides a comprehensive environment for statistical analysis and graphics and is unrivaled in the availability of new, cutting-edge applications. R is a very powerful system for statistical computations and graphics, and runs on Windows, UNIX and Mac computers. It is freely available for download from http://www.r-project.org/ .
These live, interactive, synchronous online courses are conducted in five separate, weekly 3-hour sessions including a pre-class session to ensure that everyone has installed the R and R Commander software without problems. All classes are recorded and provided to participants so, if you miss a class, you will have the recording.
