Frequently Asked Questions

I have no prior programming experience. Is this course for me?
Yes! This course is designed to guide you through the very basics of R, starting with installation. It is not necessary or expected that you have any previous knowledge of computer programming.
How long is the course?
There are eight sections, each with anywhere between one and seven lectures. The entire course should keep a casual learner occupied for several weeks.
Why R?
There are a multitude of alternatives to R that could serve as equally effective tools for hockey analysis. I offer a course for R because it is my specialty, and I feel its strengths are well suited to analytics. R is popular among hockey stats enthusiasts, making it easier to connect, collaborate and share knowledge with others. In addition, learning the basics of R is a precursor for use of the coRsica package.
Are there deadlines to complete the lectures or can I learn at my own pace?
There are no deadlines. Once enrolled, students can work through the course material at their own convenience.
