DataLearn is an open-for-all course with no restrictions on graduation year or major. The course is beginner friendly and assumes no prior coding knowledge. However, the course is fast paced and we expect students to keep up with the course material.
What are the expectations for someone enrolled in this course?
We expect 100% attendance throughout the course as material won’t be repeated across weeks. Attendance will be recorded every week. Course materials will be shared at the end of each class to revise, and go over concepts which were not covered in class. Each lecture will be followed by a short take-home assignment (~2 multiple choice questions) which will be graded for correctness.
