There is significant demand for trained data scientists to provide insight and analysis of health-related data. A MOOC allows a flexible means of course provision for learners, as they can undertake the learning at a time and location which is to their convenience in addition to having the possibility to collaborate with a broad number of learners face to face. Understanding the costs to deliver these courses could enable further investment in the development of these courses to replace costly and limited one-time use course implementations.
