What is DataCamp?
It is one of the oldest online education platforms founded practically at the same time as Coursera, back in 2013. Unlike Coursera and other major platforms, DataCamp doesn’t provide courses on diverse disciplines and specializations but focuses exclusively on the IT industry and related specialties, with the strongest educational field being Machine learning.
DataCamp offers a fully automated product. A student pays for a subscription and gets access to 300+ courses, each containing 4-6 hours of video lectures and automated checks of mini-tasks.
For convenience, the courses are grouped into “Skills,” for instance, “Data visualization in R,” and “Career Tracks,” for example, Specialist in Machine Learning with Python.” When you buy a subscription, you can complete courses or watch the lectures and complete the tasks in any preferred order since there is no strict plan you need to follow.
