Intro to Digital History 2015 : Adam Crymble

This module provides a broad introduction to Digital History, and seeks to give students the intellectual tools to critique the sources they use for research online, as well as make them aware of the new ways historians are interrogating those sources to come to new discoveries about the past. The course is designed to emphasise the skills of criticism and knowledge of the major methodologies of digital history. Technical competence in the implementation of these methodologies is not a prerequisite to successful completion of the module. The group meets once a week for 2 hours (Tuesdays 5-7pm).

Data Science and Machine Learning. R is fast becoming the tool of choice for data scientists in a variety of fields.

Data Science and Machine Learning

It's rather idiosyncratic, but very powerful, and very fast. Here are some resources that I've found helpful in learning it, or that I've bookmarked to look at later, as well as some projects that make use of it. Before getting into resources for learning R, I highly recommend getting to know RStudio, an excellent development environment for running R scripts, examining datasets, and plotting data visualizations. It's free and open-source, and it integrates well with RStudio's Shiny tool for sharing data visualizations online (see below).

Getting started I've found several massive, open online courses (MOOCs) that had helpful introductory tutorials on R. The Analytics Edge (MIT) - this was, if I remember correctly, the most helpful set of videos and exercises for learning R. My first work with R was in another MOOC, which shall remain nameless.

This book provides a plainspoken and thorough introduction to the web for historians—teachers and students, archivists and museum curators, professors as well as amateur enthusiasts—who wish to produce online historical work, or to build upon and improve the projects they have already started in this important new medium.

It begins with an overview of the different genres of history websites, surveying a range of digital history work that has been created since the beginning of the web. The book then takes the reader step-by-step through planning a project, understanding the technologies involved and how to choose the appropriate ones, designing a site that is both easy-to-use and scholarly, digitizing materials in a way that makes them web-friendly while preserving their historical integrity, and how to reach and respond to an intended audience effectively.
