Course Description

Experimental design is a crucial part of data analysis in any field, whether you work in business, health or tech. If you want to use data to answer a question, you need to design an experiment! In this course you will learn about basic experimental design, including block and factorial designs, and commonly used statistical tests, such as the t-tests and ANOVAs. You will use built-in R data and real world datasets including the CDC NHANES survey, SAT Scores from NY Public Schools, and Lending Club Loan Data. Following the course, you will be able to design and analyze your own experiments!

I've used other sites—Coursera, Udacity, things like that—but DataCamp's been the one that I've stuck with.
