Using Python to Access Web Data Offered By University of Michigan
This course will show how one can treat the Internet as a source of data.  We will scrape, parse, and read web data as well as access data using web APIs.  We will work with HTML, XML, and JSON data formats in Python.  This course will cover Chapters 11-13 of the textbook Python for Everybody. To succeed in this course, you should be familiar with the material covered in Chapters 1-10 of the textbook and the first two courses in this specialization.  These topics include variables and expressions, conditional execution (loops, branching, and try-except), functions, Python data structures (strings, lists, dictionaries, and tuples), and manipulating files. This course covers Python 3.

Python Programming Offered by Harvard University
Harvard University is offering a free online course on Python Programming. This course bridges the gap between introductory and advanced courses in Python.
In this four-week course, applicants will take introductory knowledge of Python programming to the next level and learn how to use Python 3 for research.
This course bridges the gap between introductory and advanced courses in Python. While there are many excellent introductory Python courses available, most typically do not go deep enough for you to apply your Python skills to research projects. In this course, after first reviewing the basics of Python 3, we learn about tools commonly used in research settings.

Analytics in Python Offered by Columbia University in the city of New York
Data is the lifeblood of an organization. Competency in programming is an essential skill for successfully extracting information and knowledge from data.
The goal of this course is to introduce learners to the basics of programming in Python and to give a working knowledge of how to use programs to deal with data.
In this course, we will first cover the basics of programming and then focus on using Python on the entire data management process from data acquisition to analysis of data big data and small data.
This is an intensive hands-on course that will equip and reward learners with proficiency in data management skills.

What you'll learn
