Web scraping in R


Click here for the slides, and here for all the course materials.

I recently organised a short course on web scraping in R, as part of a Master’s Programme in Computational Social Science, at the University of Lucerne.

I have built a website and a Shiny app just for this course, to facilitate learning. These are tailored for the exercises in the course.

You can find other course material at GitHub. The slides are better viewed here on my website.*

I would be happy to organise this course again. Let me know if this might be possible at your institution.

And if you like the sound of this course, you might also be interested in the other digital-skills courses that I teach. Have a look at the teaching section of my website.
