excellent course ... gave me a lot of learning.

The course gives an overall exposure about the subject. The focus could be tighten into one program, and there could be more readings/videos about the idea how social media data should be analyzed or interpreted. Yet, the course has too much attention to tools (R and Python).

This is an excellent course.

Very useful to learn the basics of social media analysis (twitter and youtube) with python and R.

It's a good course to start.
