TOP REVIEWS FROM COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE METHODS
Excellent course and the instructor(s) make it even more engaging. I love Martin Hilbert and his explanations, examples. I enjoyed course 1 alot and continuing course 2 at the moment.
The course was very well planned. The course does not need any prior specialization and anybody with diligence and intent can acquire the skill taught through this course with ease
This is a great course to take as an introduction to Computational Social Science. I hope the rest of the Specialization is just as engaging, relevant, and informative.
Don't expect to dive deep into computational tools, but it's a great introductory course into Computational Social Science and the professors are great.
