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.

A really hard course but useful for those who want to know more about statistics and how it is related to Bayes' theorem.

It's a good introductory course to Bayesian statistics, a second part with Gibbs Sampling, Markov and MCMC would be nice.

The teacher is excellent and charming and the course is also easy to follow. However, with more exercise will be better!

Very interesting. It can help taking notes during the course... to avoid going again through it and take them ex-post.

Excellent course, although it would have been nice to get more content on uninformative priors and Fisher information.

Very useful course, described a basic understanding behind Bayesian theory and sequential updating of posteriors.

A good course, even it's not very deep, it still can teach people something fresh and comprehensive knowledge.

Very good! Going through this course, one would get basic idea about Bayesian Statistics and conjugate prior.

A Good Introduction to Bayesian Statistics. I always get quick response after I post a question on the forum.

The coolest part of this lecture is mathematical explanation of concepts, especially about conjugate priors.

The bite-sized arrangement of individual videos are very conducive for learning and self internalisation.

This is an excellent course but you will need background in calculus and some statistics to begin with
