Are there any MOOC or other (free/cheap) online classes for advanced statistics? I'm thinking upper-level undergrad or introductory graduate level. Things like time series models, factor analysis, MLE, Bayesian statistics, etc.

    $\begingroup$ This question has a very short time frame, so answering it even with a great list of courses that will be offered in the next couple of months won't help the "eternity" knowledge. Most MOOCs can be audited later, but to receive credit, you usually have to enroll concurrently. $\endgroup$ – StasK Jun 26 '14 at 15:56
  • $\begingroup$ As far as i am concerned, I do not mind of credits. As you say, most MOOCs can be audited later and therefore can allow self-learning. $\endgroup$ – Aurelie Jun 26 '14 at 16:03
