About the Course

This course presents critical concepts and practical methods to support planning, collection, storage, and dissemination of data in clinical research. Understanding and implementing solid data management principles is critical for any scientific domain. Regardless of your current (or anticipated) role in the research enterprise, a strong working knowledge and skill set in data management principles and practice will increase your productivity and improve your science. Our goal is to use these modules to help you learn and practice this skill set. This course assumes very little current knowledge of technology other than how to operate a web browser. We will focus on practical lessons, short quizzes, and hands-on exercises as we explore together best practices for data management....

Very practical given the potential scope of the material. The ability to get hands on with REDCap is a real bonus and helps bring the content to life through discovery and application. The special topics overviews as a dip into larger extensions of the work is also super helpful and helps put what we learn in context of the bigger picture in various settings.

I wish the instructors were a little more accessible. It is hard that everyone is looking to receive help. I think for those who complete asignment and review that you all find ways to have it where those same individuals can grade the ones coming behind them. It's only fair. Otherwise, the course wasn't that hard to follow.

This is one of the most informative and eye opening course I have ever participated in. Data is everywhere and is everything that helps researchers to invent or discover great ideas to improve human and business ideas. I wish I could be hanging my certificate copy in my office wall to show off my achievement.

Very good course. I enjoyed Paul classes specially and it was very informative. If I may add my opinion there was a bit overlap at the end of the course, there where two classes that were very similar talking about clinical research in developing countries.
