This course introduces the Bayesian approach to statistics, starting with the concept of probability and moving to the analysis of data. We will learn about the philosophy of the Bayesian approach as well as how to implement it for common types of data. We will compare the Bayesian approach to the more commonly-taught Frequentist approach, and see some of the benefits of the Bayesian approach. In particular, the Bayesian approach allows for better accounting of uncertainty, results that have more intuitive and interpretable meaning, and more explicit statements of assumptions. This course combines lecture videos, computer demonstrations, readings, exercises, and discussion boards to create an active learning experience. For computing, you have the choice of using Microsoft Excel or the open-source, freely available statistical package R, with equivalent content for both options. The lectures provide some of the basic mathematical development as well as explanations of philosophy and interpretation. Completion of this course will give you an understanding of the concepts of the Bayesian approach, understanding the key differences between Bayesian and Frequentist approaches, and the ability to do basic data analyses....

Good intro to Bayesian Statistics. Covers the basic concepts. Workload is reasonable and quizzes/exercises are helpful. Could include more exercises and additional backgroung/future reading materials.

Great course. The content moves at a nice pace and the videos are really good to follow. The Quizzes are also set at a good level. You can't pass this course unless you have understood the material.

Thanks, Coursera. This is a good course. It would be helpful if we get any proper class notes on Jeffrey's prior and Multivariate regression.

Great course with a lot of simple, but illustrative exercises. It may be useful to have some basic prior knowledge of econometrics/statistics

Great introductory course. It was challenging but doable for someone who has not take college level mathematics or statistics in a few years.

Invaluable. Excellent quizzes. A few terms could have been better defined, and a few more examples wouldn't hurt, but overall excellent.

Awesome course that helped me overcome the Bayesian statistics way of thinking hurdle. Now, I want to go on and learn MCMC, Metropolis !

Very good course. Prof. Lee explains each concept well. Bayesian Stats makes more sense to me now than before!!

Thanks so much Prof. Lee

I loved this course, I learned a lot and I hope I will be able to use this knowledge when I go back to college for my Master's degree.

A very good course. Even better if you continue with the 2nd course that teaches about how to implement Bayesian data analysis in JAGS

Give you great insight. Very intuitive. Although we went through the last week rather quick (more explanation would have been better)

This course is a very good introductory of bayesian statistics. But it better that you have known the basic statistics inference.

A clear and compact introduction. Quizzes and exercises are relevant. I got acces to grades and feedback in the audit one I took.

Learned something new :). Lecture were excellent, but, I need time to digest and hope I will get opportunity to use it in future.

I studied basic theory from these lectures. I will try again and again until I understand Baysian Statistics concept completely.

The video content is not too much. However, students can learn and practise a lot from supplementary materials and quizzes.

Very useful crash course in Bayesian Statistics. It requires some basic knowledge in statistics and probability as stated.

This course was dense, concise, and yet easy to follow for individuals that are fairly comfortable with basic statistics.
