Learner Spotlight: Learning on DataCamp with a Disability
In my case specifically, my deafness presents little problem since I can switch on subtitles on videos (and in Spanish, my native language) and the instructions for exercises are presented in written form rather than verbally.
Data science is a sector with a lot of potential, and I would love to work in it! I currently work as a network specialist, so I already have a solid grounding in technology and 15 years of working in consulting with different types of clients. I would especially like to continue this as a data science consultant, though I am quite open to any other type of data science work.
I chose DataCamp since it’s a very practical platform for learning. I love how short the courses are and the presence of practice exercises, since these two features enable me to learn information quickly and retain it afterward. The fact that the courses are very hands-on also means I feel more able to reapply what I’ve learned.
