LAST CALL: NEW SECTION BEGINS JUNE 1 (11AM-2PM ET) AND MAY 27 (6PM-9PM ET)



The non-profit organization *Information Institute* (
http://www.information-institute.org) is offering a live, interactive,
synchronous online course entitled *Fundamentals of Using R*. The
registration cost for the 14-hour, 5 week course is $225 USD (student); $295
(faculty); and $325 (practitioner). All live, interactive class sessions are
recorded and provided to participants for their repeated post-class review.
The course is popular so we opened an additional section beginning June 1.



This course is designed for people who are curious about R, new to R, and
who would like to obtain a basic knowledge of R capabilities that apply to
any ultimate intended use of R. This course instructs about the R
environment: using workspaces; importing and exporting data; R data types,
data structures, and objects; writing simple and complex scripts; essential
R functions and packages; writing your own R functions and packages;
programming with R; publication-style 2-D and 3-D graphics capabilities
using special R packages, and many other essential topics. The course is
designed to serve as a useful knowledge foundation regardless of one’s
ultimate use of R (for example, statistical and data analyses, programming,
writing scripts or creating packages, using graphics, etc.). There is more
information at the URLs below.



The informational (and registration) site for the June 1 AM version (AM by
US Eastern Time) is here: https://www.regonline.com/R-fund-june-AM This
course runs on five consecutive Wednesdays from June 1 to June 29, from 11AM

The informational (and registration) site for the PM version (PM by US
Eastern Time) is here: https://www.regonline.com/R-fund-may-PM  This course
