Here’s a resource for the University of Duhok. Wikihow is a website where people can post how-to manuals. It has a Kurdish language page.
Rather than have my manual translated into Kurdish, I hope that some people at University of Duhok will be able to post short articles describing individual resources on Wikihow. For example, here are some tasks that might require a bit of learning:
- how to register for IVSL access
- how to access JSTOR through IVSL
- how to find a course syllabus at MIT Open Courseware
- how to run a quick query at the World Bank WDI site
- how to use Google Scholar
- how to write footnotes/bibliographies with Zotero or Endnote
- how to install R on your computer
I’m sure you can think of more.
I can’t write these in Kurdish, but I bet the students at UOD can.
Please comment on this if you know of Arabic and Kurdish language resources for learning R.
I have been encouraging the economics faculty here to learn R for econometrics, both on grounds of quality and cost.
Here is a short list of resources that can help new users make the transition from SPSS if they choose.
- Home page and downloads
- Instructions from UCLA
- Instructions for SPSS Users
- Graph examples
- Econometrics with R (pdf)
These resources are all in English. Does anyone know where to find R manuals or tutorials in Arabic?
Update: the R project posts foreign-language tutorials in Chinese, French, German, Italian, and several other languages but no Arabic.
