About the Course

Welcome to this project-based course, Get Started with R Markdown. This project-based course is for people who are learning R and seek useful ways to organize their work in R. We will start this hands-on project with an overview of the project; then, we will get familiar with the RStudio interface and install the rmarkdown package. Be rest assured that you will learn a ton of good work here. In this project, you will learn about R Markdowns and its’ usefulness to you as an R user. By the end of this 2-hour long project, you will be able to create an R Markdown, understand the different components of the file, knit the file as an HTML document or a pdf document and write some R Markdown commands. By extension, we will learn how to publish the knitted document on RPubs. This project aims at learners looking to get started using the R programming language to create reproducible documents. There are no hard prerequisites, and any competent computer user should complete the project successfully....

If you need a very basic intro to RMarkdown, this course is basically ok and I more or less got a basic start out of it.

It is truly "Get started with..." and nothing more. (Which is what I was looking for).

Unfortunately, for $10 it is overpriced. Really. I would be willing to pay $10 for even a wee bit more content that is more thoughtfully presented (editing, structure, transitions, compare/contrasts, better use of screen). And more content wouldn't necessarily translate into a longer course, but perhaps a stronger "Get started with..." and more tightly presented.
