Sobre o curso

This course introduces the Bayesian approach to statistics, starting with the concept of probability and moving to the analysis of data. We will learn about the philosophy of the Bayesian approach as well as how to implement it for common types of data. We will compare the Bayesian approach to the more commonly-taught Frequentist approach, and see some of the benefits of the Bayesian approach. In particular, the Bayesian approach allows for better accounting of uncertainty, results that have more intuitive and interpretable meaning, and more explicit statements of assumptions. This course combines lecture videos, computer demonstrations, readings, exercises, and discussion boards to create an active learning experience. For computing, you have the choice of using Microsoft Excel or the open-source, freely available statistical package R, with equivalent content for both options. The lectures provide some of the basic mathematical development as well as explanations of philosophy and interpretation. Completion of this course will give you an understanding of the concepts of the Bayesian approach, understanding the key differences between Bayesian and Frequentist approaches, and the ability to do basic data analyses....

Good intro to Bayesian Statistics. Covers the basic concepts. Workload is reasonable and quizzes/exercises are helpful. Could include more exercises and additional backgroung/future reading materials.

An excellent course with some good hands on exercises in both R and excel. Not for the faint of heart mathematically speaking, assumes a competent understanding of statistics and probability going in

T​he material is quite hard for someone who has only basic knowledge in statistics. But the excercises are helpful.

Well explained and articulated. You can apply it straight to your work problems. I really enjoyed doing the course.

Excellent introductory course. Some of the concepts in the later part of the course are not explained well though.

Overall great course, the last part (linear regression) seems somewhat disconnected from the rest of the course.

I can learn the concept, but need to understand the details well in other ways. eg. reading, or searching online

Great course with a good theory/practice balance, but examples could be a bit more refreshing and less boring.

More assignments and live and truncky examples applying the principles would make course even more wonderful

I wish the last week were more explanatory. Although overall now I do have an idea. It's a good course. :-)

Could do with more exercises.

However, I found some elsewhere on the internet, so that was complementary

Pretty good introductory material overall. Only disappointing part was the section on linear regression.

A little hurry in the normal distribution part, otherwise a great course for Bayesian introduction.

Excelente curso, porém acredito que uma implementação dos códigos também em Python seria perfeito.

a little bit difficult, I think you need to hold a solide background toward inferential statistics

I expected more examples to be solved or at least it could be provided as supplementary materials

The course is good but requires a lot of homework if you are rusty on probability/statistics...
