Great course by Dr Jocelyn Mara, Assistant Professor in Sports Analytics at the University of Canberra. Amazing how a few lines is able to generate in-depth statistical analysis. This is the only online course I've found that uses real sporting data for practical hands-on learning of R programming. Excited to put what I've learnt into good use!
