Aditya S. from India has attended online science courses before. For example, he has learned about how music is perceived and processed by the brain in an online course (MOOC) offered by Duke University via Coursera.
Which Online Courses Does He Want To Do Next?
Aditya would now like to take an online course on data science in Python from the University of Michigan for practical reasons:
"I run a startup which develops novel ways of applying psychology in the industry. We primarily focus on how information is processed. For that reason, it is essential to write scripts that analyze tons of textual data.
While I try to learn through free tutorials online, a dedicated course in data science using Python would help acquire the necessary skills to refine my company’s offering."
He is also planning to take a science writing class via FutureLearn to refine his writing skills.
"The majority of work I do involves writing. Science communication is something I would like to hone. Returning to the basics of scientific writing would directly help me write better.
I run a blog that aims at communicating technically loaded psychological information to a non-technical audience. Although I don’t plan to enter an academic career path, my work directly draws from academic publications across the psychological and cognitive sciences.
Furthermore, I take up freelance writing assignments. And for that, this course would be a great primer."
