Universities Get Creative with Data Science Education

Good luck getting into Professor Yoav Freund’s big data analytics and Spark class at the University of California, San Diego this fall. “There’s always a very long waiting list to get in,” he says. But thanks to a new partnership between UCSD and EdX, anybody can take the same course online for free.

On September 3, UCSD will start its second round of MicroMasters classes with EdX, which was created by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University in 2012 to provide online duplicates of popular classes at major colleges and universities around the country.
