R course material

This page contains a collection of R tutorials, developed at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam for Communication Science courses that use R.

The goal is to organize relevant material into modular components, for more efficient design and maintenance of material, that can be used across courses, and that are accessible to students during and after their studies.
