I completed the inaugural ml-class.org course! I was interested in online courses and honing my machine learning skills, so I took the course. It was a success. Here is my statement of accomplishment. I learned that online courses have advantages that my college courses lacked. The ability to recall, replay and test on lectures in a user friendly manner. The shared experience of other students enrolled in the course, again stored away for convenient recall. I also became familiar with new algorithms such as PCA and large scale machine learning. I’d recommend this course to anyone interested in learning about machine learning .
