Coursera Class on Recommender Systems

In about 1 month, the course, Introduction to Recommender Systems, will begin on Coursera. The course is being offered by the Computer Science and Engineering Department from the University of Minnesota.

The course is 14 weeks long and has 2 tracks:

  1. Programming Track – 6 different recommender systems will be programmed
  2. Concept Track – great for people that want to know about recommender systems, but don’t want program

Recommender systems are an important part of data science, and this course looks to provide an excellent in-depth overview of the topic.

  1. This Course has been closed for new registrations. If you are participating in the course could youy please post the links to the video lectures in a post. It’ll be really helpful.

    1. I am not sure if the video will be available on youtube. Only some of the Coursera instructors put stuff on Youtube. If I do find them, I will be sure to share a link on my blog.


  2. Hi Ryan, would you be willing to share the downloaded videos for those of us that weren’t able to register for the course? is an awesome python tool I’ve used to download videos and watch when I know I won’t have an internet connection. I’ve read your other posts and know your very familiar with python so I doubt this would take more than a few minutes of your time. Thx!

    1. Unfortunately, I did not actually take that course. I just had many other things going on. A few other people have asked about the videos, but no one has been able to produce the videos.
