This course that has given me a working understanding of R and the core statistical modeling techniques that you would find, for example, in James et al, "An Introduction to Statistical Learning". It is a very problem-oriented, hands-on course with a nontrivial workload, but in my experience so far, it has been very effective. The homework problems are very practical and illustrate the underlying statistical concepts very nicely in real-world settings.

To me it's just time consuming. Every week it's 4 sets of assignments 20+ questions each. On some questions there is only one attempt. But I admit it is a VERY GOOD course for beginners.
Modeling (i.e linear regression, logistic regression etc.) are well explained by examples using R.

This class is challenging for me, but I have no previous experience with R and very limited experience with statistics. The teaching team does a good job of explaining the material and choosing interesting topics for each section.
