About the Course

In this first course of this specialization, you will discover what data visualization is, and how we can use it to better see and understand data. Using Tableau, we’ll examine the fundamental concepts of data visualization and explore the Tableau interface, identifying and applying the various tools Tableau has to offer. By the end of the course you will be able to prepare and import data into Tableau and explain the relationship between data analytics and data visualization. This course is designed for the learner who has never used Tableau before, or who may need a refresher or want to explore Tableau in more depth. No prior technical or analytical background is required. The course will guide you through the steps necessary to create your first visualization from the beginning based on data context, setting the stage for you to advance to the next course in the Specialization....

Am glad I learnt a lot from this module, which I know will sharpen my skills for my chosen career path as a data scientist. Am hoping to learn more new skills to improve on my already existing skills.

The Course was well suited for beginners and explained pretty useful concepts, but I think materials of week 3 need to be polished more.

This is a great course that could only be improved by requiring the students to work on more examples. I appreciate the peer reviews.

The course was a bit high on the theory side, but I look forward to the other courses of the specialisation to learn more of Tableau.

I expected a more hands on class with more uses of tableau. Overall a great foundation course for beginners with plenty of visuals.

Some off the instructions for the assignments were either incomplete or misleading. Uploading instructions were also unclear.

I thought the content was very succinct and informative. Only point I would suggest is have more practice instead of theory.

This course is very useful for beginner. But I think it would be better if the course can go deeper and add more exercise.

I did not find any way to contact the instructor. I believe there should be a way of communication with the instructors.

It introduces the basic idea of visualizations in an interesting way, but it would be better if more content is given.

Course is very good for the beginners but can be added more details as the course contains very basic information

Very theoretical, not a whole lot of Tableau action. Will do the following courses for more technical learning.
