Is Your Data Working?

Your data should work for you – it’s a resource that can make your work more effective and more efficient. But to get your data to work that way, you first need to do your part. You need to know what questions you can answer with data and how you can make use of those answers. You need to know how to use the data tools that match your purposes, whether those tools be simple spreadsheets or machine learning algorithms. And you need to develop a data mindset that can help you find clarity in chaos.

The Foundations of Data Science

Our first collection of videos provides accessible and non-technical overviews of the field of data science and its facets, such as common programming languages and applications, the practical aspects of data sourcing, important mathematical concepts, and common statistical approaches.

 

The Tools of Data

In working with data, you’ll confront novel problems that require creative solutions. A wide range of tools can help you find these solutions efficiently and accurately. datalab.cc offers tutorials on the most important tools for working constructively with data. Current tools courses include introductory courses on Google Sheets, the open-source data analysis program jamovi, the statistical programming language R, the analytical application SPSS, the data gathering tool Typeform, and the data visualization app RAW.

 

Free and Open-Source Videos

All of datalab.cc’s videos are free and open-source thanks to a Creative Common Attribution (CC-BY) license. This means that anyone can use, share, and adapt the videos however they like – even commercially – as long as they credit the videos to datalab.cc and link to our pages. Several organizations have already done this to great success: freeCodeCamp compiled the 75 videos from our Foundations of Data Science into a single, six-hour long video, which has been viewed over 300,000 times and is currently the number one hit on YouTube for “learn data science” and a top three hit for “data science” generally. My CS took the same approach and has nearly 200,000 hits on their YouTube channel. Blossom Academy, a groundbreaking data science bootcamp in Ghana, has also used the videos to prepare their students. We invite you to use these videos to support learning for you and you audience.

Get Involved

You can learn the fundamental principles of data work here at datalab.cc but you can also get hands-on experience with real data in the service of important causes. datalab.cc sponsors in-person data events where people can put there skills to good use. We have a data community that supports involvement with nonprofits over an extended period of time and data charrettes that connect volunteers and nonprofits for two-day data service events. In addition, we founded the Data Charrette Meetup group to help prepare people for service-oriented data work. All of these are currently based in Utah but we hope to expand them anywhere that people would like to do meaningful work with data. If you’d like to bring them to the places you care about, please contact us at hello@datalab.cc.
