Coursera – Social Media Analysis – Michigan Univerity

University of Michigan

https://www.coursera.org/course/sna

The Social Network Analysis MOOC started this week on Coursera.
The course is given by Lada Adamic, an assiciate professor at MU who took a sabbatical year to go and work at Facebook. A year later she’s back with this inspiring course.
Lada Adamic will introduce you to social network mechanics and concepts. The tool of choice in this case is Gephi, which is a free to use graph/network visualisation tool.
This 8 week course combines video lectures with homework assignments during which you will learn to use Gephi and apply the freshly acquired knowledge on real data sets.
The course offers the possibility to apply for a certificate.

As a personal note from Glenn Vanderlinden:

I already went through the first couple of units and it looks rather interesting. It makes use of Gephi, which is to an extent an alternative to Neo4j. Might be interested for people who attended the last Meetup or who are interested in graph/network analysis. I hope this is useful for the community.
