Google Data Science MOOC

Google recently announced the launch of their own Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). The course is titled, Making Sense of Data, and it begins tomorrow, March 18, 2014.

The prerequisites are quite simple. All that is needed is: a google account, a web browser, and a basic knowledge of spreadsheets.

The content of the course will focus on Fusion Tables, which is a new experimental product from Google. Fusion Tables is a web application for visualizing, gathering, and sharing data. I am not familiar with Fusion Tables, but the description sounds very useful.

Here is the promotional video.
