This week the Odum Institute at UNC held a two day short course on text classification with RTextTools. The workshop, led by Loren Collingwood, covered the basics of content analysis, supervised learning and text classification, introduction to R, and how to use RTextTools. Participants brought in their own data on the second day, which the instructor helped them classify. Based on feedback, the course was a success. Do not hesitate to contact us if your university, department, or company is interested in such a course.

Are there any slides / course materials available for someone who couldn't attend? Also...is there a schedule out for upcoming training sessions? What would it take to get a training session in my 'hood?

Joe, I will post the slides (or some of them) shortly. We do not have a schedule yet -- we are in the marketing phase still. Why don't you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss further. Where are you located?

Can RTextTools be used for Chinese character input? Do you have any experience analyzing Chinese corpora?

Jon, while we have never tried that, I'm pretty sure it's not possible. Sorry...
