EDx and Microsoft have a great course: Microsoft: DAT203.1x, Data Science Essentials.

Try this lab out, and it will walk you through the modeling steps:

  1. Create a predictive model with a sample data set
  2. Verify the accuracy of the model
  3. Deploy the model as an Azure Web Service, with an API, and URL
  4. Use Excel and Azure Machine Learning Plugin to hit the API with the data in your excel sheet
  5. View your predicted values based on your machine learning model!
