“Mining Massive Datasets,” a Stanford course taught by a trio of instructors including Kosmix and Junglee founder, and former Amazon technology director, Anand Rajaraman, will be available on Coursera beginning Sept. 29. In a blog post, Rajaraman said the online version will include the same content as the Stanford one, and will introduce students to core big data algorithms and concepts, such as MapReduce, graph processing and recommendation systems. Coursera is already home to a number of popular big data courses and well-known instructors, most famously Andrew Ng’s machine learning course.
