Ruth Vilmi's curator insight, May 24, 2013 12:24 PM

The only real surprise to me was that there were close to zero students from China. How long will these courses remain free, I wonder?

Helena Capela's curator insight, May 25, 2013 5:19 AM

Relatório com algumas conclusões talvez inesperadas.

Sanford Arbogast's curator insight, May 25, 2013 1:46 PM

one of the surprises should have been that 22K people took an Equine nutrition class.

Evidence is Power
Intriguing Networks's insight:

Your own Summer school? The Open Knowledge Foundation's School of data and FREE Courses promoted by the Guardian Data Blog Team should be a line of enquiry for any of us surely looking to explore the meaning of data. whether Humantities Journalism or Communication the resonance of Eveidence is Power and the hope for rationalism is music to my ears and some reason for optimism in a sea of unsupported opinions....

 

If you know a graduate emerging from Uni and they want to think about what they are going to do in the world, here is a skill worth a bit of effort for free. Come to think of it there is a ton of us all could do with a dose of this and a bit of rationalisation based on facts.

 

I just heard BBC Question Time and the lack of evidence for opinion was all too familiar something we all need to focus on perhaps?

 

Looking forward to taking the courses myself this summer and hope to challenge my own analytical skills or at least sharpen them a little.

 

Data Journalism seems like a good starting point in a world where we do not trust the Politicians and do not trust the Journos, How can revelling in the data help us pursue the insights we seek?

 

On the branding side what a tagline School of Data, Evidence is Power with that and the democratisation of the web with Open Source and Access and the likes of Wordpress with 'Code is Poetry' something for us all to learn from.

 

Please share around it is a skills so many organisations need not just in DH. I can hear someone saying so where is your evidence for that well hey just look around and at ourselves.
