  1. A great Data Science resource for you

    Dr. Narayana,

    You list some great MOOC resources on Data Science in your blog (http://nraomtr.blogspot.in/2014/08/data-science-new-subject-introduction.html).

    I think you will find CourseBuffet a great resource for your readers and fans as a MOOCs aggregator. Our mission is to organize MOOCs better. We put MOOCs in a course catalog format similar to what you will find at a US university. This means grouping similar courses together and in a relative order. This makes it easier and faster for users to compare courses and plan the order they might take courses in.

    As showing is better than telling, here are some links to MOOCs relating to Data Science, Data Analysis and Statistics on CourseBuffet:

    Our search results are clean, we don’t list paid courses or take affiliate fees. We steer clear of advertisement too. Users just get the most relevant results for their search. For all the areas and subjects on CourseBuffet see: https://www.coursebuffet.com/areas

    I think you will find CourseBuffet a great resource for yourself and for your blog and its readers and fans.
