Bayesian Statistics is a captivating field and is used most prominently in data sciences. In this course we will learn about the foundation of Bayesian concepts, how it differs from Classical Statistics including among others Parametrizations, Priors, Likelihood, Monte Carlo methods and computing Bayesian models with the exploration of Multilevel modelling. This course is divided into two parts i.e. Theoretical and Empirical part of Bayesian Analytics. First three weeks cover the Theoretical part which includes how to form a prior, how to calculate a posterior and several other aspects. Rest of the weeks will cover the empirical part which explains how to compute Bayesian modelling. Completion of this course will provide you with an understanding of the Bayesian approach, the primary difference between Bayesian and Frequentist approaches and experience in data analyses.
An excellent online course offered by edX: how it works
edX courses consist of weekly learning sequences. Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practise the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants. Where applicable, online laboratories are incorporated into the course.
edX offers certificates of successful completion and some courses are credit-eligible. Whether or not a college or university offers credit for an online course is within the sole discretion of the school. edX offers a variety of ways to take courses, including verified courses where students have the option to audit the course (no cost) or to work toward an edX Verified Certificate (fees vary by course). edX also offers XSeries Certificates for completion of a bundled set of two to seven verified courses in a single subject (cost varies depending on the courses).
