As companies amass more data than ever, the employees best able to interpret it and apply key insights to important decision-making processes become increasingly valuable. 

But while the skillset grows more desirable, the supply of workers with the correct skills isn't sufficient — making data science skills among the most in-demand hard skills in 2020, according to LinkedIn's research.

Thankfully, there are plenty of online learning opportunities to help you prepare for a career in data science, whether it's a course that helps you master a specific skill or an intensive year-long program that helps you jump up the ladder in your current role. Many classes are offered by top schools such as Harvard and MIT, and many programs were designed by major companies like IBM and Google specifically for educating a useful future workforce. Some of them offer students the opportunity to join their talent network after completing a specific course level.

Below are a few of the most popular data science options online, including MicroMasters, professional certificates, and individual courses.

Professional certificates are bundles of related courses that help you master a specific skill, and they tend to be most useful for breaking into a new industry or getting you to the next level of your career. They can take anywhere from a few months to more than a year to complete. At Coursera, professional certificate programs typically have a 7-day free trial and a monthly fee afterward. So, the faster you complete it, the more money you'll save. At edX, professional certificates typically have a flat one-time fee. 

MicroMasters are a bundle of graduate-level courses that are designed to help you advance your career. Students have the option of applying to the university that's offering credit for the MicroMasters program certificate and, if accepted, can pursue an accelerated and less expensive Master's Degree.

If you end up taking a Coursera course, and you think you'll realistically spend more than $399 in monthly fees or on individual classes throughout the year, you may want to consider Coursera Plus if all the courses and programs you plan to take are included in the annual membership (90% of the site is). And, if your employer offers to cover educational costs that include online-learning programs, you may even be able to get reimbursed for the following courses.

The computer science courses below are free to enroll in, and include a certificate of completion that you can add to your resume and LinkedIn.
Coursera

Online-learning site Coursera announced in late March that it would be offering 100 classes for free until May 31, 2020, to support access to online education for the one-third of the world that's practicing some form of isolation right now. 

Among the 100 courses offered, there are nine computer science courses that you can enroll in for free and earn a certificate for completing. They're taught by some of the best universities in the world, or by high-profile institutions like Google Cloud that are offering specialized insight into their field.

You can audit Coursera courses for free throughout the year, but auditing doesn't give students access to the full features that are included in this promotion, like graded homework, projects, unlimited access to a course's reading material, and a verified certificate of completion that you can add to your CV, resume, and LinkedIn profile. 

Here's how to enroll in Coursera courses for free:

  1. Click on the class you'd like to take below and make sure that there's a blue promo banner at the top of the page. If not, refresh the page and let it load fully. 
  2. Click the "Enroll for free" button.
  3. Select "Purchase Course." If the promo has applied, it should say below that "Your promotion will automatically be applied at checkout." 
  4. At checkout, the course should state $0.

Coursera also included a few free computer science classes taught by Princeton in this promotion, which you can complete, but that don't include certificates (because they never have): Algorithms, Part I, Algorithms, Part II, Analysis of Algorithms, Computer Science: Algorithms, Theory, and Machines, and Computer Science: Programming with a Purpose

You can find the full list of Coursera's 100 free courses here, which range in topics, target ages, and from developing new career skills to diving into personal interests and building new hobbies.
