Institutions participating in the beta evaluation of Constellate sent attendees to our Introduction to Text Analytics course, taught by Nathan Kelber.  It was an 8-session, 4-week course.  We ran identical sessions (morning and afternoon) on Tuesdays and Thursdays in March 2021.

You may find the Jupyter Notebooks used during class under the "Tutorials" tab of the Constellate navigation bar above.
