Can I get a certificate for completing this course?
Yes, absolutely! Everyone that completes this course will receive an official certificate of completion.
What if I'm not an ecologist? Is the course still relevant?
Yes! Though the course is based on my own experiences of using R for ecology, all of the course content will be applicable and relevant for most other fields in biology if not many fields even outside the sciences. The course uses ecological datasets, but the principles are mostly universal.
Does it matter if I use a Mac or PC?
Nope! Although the course is taught using a Mac, the content and features in R and R Studio are universal between the two operating systems and I mention anytime there is a difference between the two.
How much do I have to know about R or statistics to take this course?
This is an intermediary course that builds up from my course on the Basics of R (for ecologists), so you don't need to know any statistics, but you should at least have a basic grasp of R as a prerequisite for this course. The course is designed to take you from the basics learned in the last course to more advanced methods of plotting data, so if you are a complete beginner, I highly recommend you check out my other course on the Basics of R which covers ALL of the essential basics.
Are the courses captioned?
Yes! All videos are captioned with english subtitles that meet accessibility standards.
