2015 Course of the Year


Data Analysis has been named the continuing professional education Course of the Year for 2015. 2015 UGotClass Course of the Year

Data analysis is a new 21st century skill for the workplace. The interest in it from people in all sorts of occupations and fields zoomed this year.

“We have had all this data.  Now we can do something with it,” says John Rutledge, who teaches the first course in Data Analysis for UGotClass.

“Data analysis is now an integral part of a business organization’s drive for efficiency,” Rutledge says. “It can help increase income or decrease expenses.  It also drives efficiency in the use of people’s time.”

The vast majority of people taking the courses in data analysis see it as part of their job, not a full-time job.  Data analysis is seen as one of the new skills they need to incorporate into their skill set.

The UGotClass online Certificate in Data Analysis premiered just last year. Yet within one year, Data Analysis became the top certificate in terms of popularity.  Data Analysis took over from Social Media in Business, which has been a top online trend course in previous years.  The area of data analysis has emerged in just the last few years, and as a course really took off this past year.

Over a hundred continuing education units in colleges and universities around Canada and the United States now offer the UGotClass online Certificate in Data Analysis.

Because of the popularity and profitability, we are recommending every LERN member in a community college, university, public school or association offer our Certificate in Data Analysis and get 50 percent of the income.  Your students can also sign up individually for any of the three courses in the certificate.  To offer the online certificate and its three online courses, email Zech Hipp at zech@lern.org
