Access a DataCamp Trial through the CWML & Join Drop-in Sessions

19 February 2019 - 3:14pm by Sawyer Newman

Information about the Medical Library’s Access to Data Camp

The Medical Library has access to a limited trial version of DataCamp, a web platform for learning topics in data science. Participant enrollment in DataCamp through the library will provide access to DataCamp’s self-directed exercises in data science including R, Python, Git and SQL.


This classroom is being offered as a limited trial for 50 participants, who will have access to the DataCamp classroom until the end of June.



  • There is a limit of 50 participants, invitations will be sent out on a first come, first serve basis, and requestors will be responsible for completing the enrollment.
  • This trial will end at the end of June 2019, and participants will lose access to DataCamp at this time.
  • Because of the scope of offerings through DataCamp classes, it is not guaranteed that the Data Librarian on hand will be able to troubleshoot every problem encountered, and it is expected that as a part of this education model, participants work towards self-directed learning.
  • Participant data about progress through courses and exercises are collected by DataCamp. This data will be de-identified and used by the Medical Library to inform future education services offered by the library. If you would like more details about what information is collected that the library will be able to see, please email medicaldata@yale.edu.
