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.
Amazing course, amazing instructors and assignments. I really enjoyed working with Tableau.\n\nYou may experience some confusion for some assignments but don't worry! Just use the discussion boards :)

Final work evaluation is based not on Tableau dashboard and skills you gained, but on Twitter post and used hashtags. I would suggest to skip this course and start from the next one in this specialization.
By Linda B•
The course was doing just fine, but the final assignment was crazy. You assumed knowledge of Twitter, URLs, posting to Twitter, screenshots, etc. Nothing said I had to be familiar with all of that.
By Ryan L•
Thought it would have more of a focus on Tableau. There wasn't very much instruction on Tableau and the first assignment was confusing with no review.

Dry lectures by a prof trying his best. There are better courses out there for the money unfortunately - check out the one offered by Duke University.
By Julian H•
It's a very quick introduction to tableau. It's suitable to do the very first steps with this software. You can finish this course within 2-3 hours
By Mariana B•
I expected to do more practical examples in Tableau. The peer assignment was horrible as the steps were so poorly explained and created confusion.
By Chen M•
It unconvenient to fly from one link to another link. not well-organized, need more practive not just answer those questions to pass the test.
By Bruno G d F e S•
The subject is great, but the materials are scattered and the peer evaluation assignments are holding me from completing the course.
By Jim S•
Very, very basic. Information presented is good but I would recommend skipping if you're adding a BI tool to an existing skillset.
By Chris M•
Some good resources provided, but too high level. Looking forward to more detail in the next courses.
By S.Sai R S S•
There is not much Depth even in the topics covered in this course !!
By Beverly F•
I thought this would be a class to learn Tableau. it wasn't.
By Seho L•
Material is too scattered and I didn't learn much.
By Kevin M•
Assignments were way too easy and tedious.
By Monserrat A R•
mucho mas básico de lo que me imaginaba
By Zack W•
Not very informative, it would help a lot if there was some sort of standard dataset that was included with the course rather than picking your own, as the dataset I picked was not nicely formatted for use in Tableau (although I would've been fine making visualizations in Python/R/etc).
Final project requires you to post on Twitter. I do not have a Twitter, I do not want a Twitter, I don't understand what Twitter has to do with learning Tableau, therefore I did not finish the course.
By Larry C•
Very basic in terms of material covered. Would be nice as a free remedial class in prep for the main specialization. Homework assignments were confusing and did not appear to have been reviewed by the instructors before being sent to students (main problem, the free software students use was not the same version as that being used to develop the homework). Instructor support was not evident in the user forums. Below the quality of the free classes taken in the past.
By Peter C•
I thought the presentation was clear, the production was professional, and the instructors were solid. Unfortunately I felt the course had too much "fluff" and not enough functional/technical knowledge. Yes, there are interesting topics... but for a course titled, "fundamental of Visualization with TABLEAU," I expected a lot more of Tableau to be covered. All you get from this course is how to connect to data sources, which is intuitive to begin with. Disappointed.
By Theodore B•
I think this course could use a real bump with instruction and content. I found Week 3 to be very repetitive for each "module". I am flat out disappointed and I wish I could get my money back. I shouldn't be able to breeze through this so quickly without really touching the tool before. Second - the Week 3 Peer Review assignment won't even work - I can't get TP to import it no matter how I try - Excel or sliced CSVs.
By Edward M•
This is really more of a fundamentals of visualisation than a Tableau course. Misleading title aside, the course left quite a bit to be desired and included peer-reviewed assignments which covered content not discussed in the course. Repeated attempts by participants to have the assignments updated and have gone unacknowledged for 2 years from when I took the course in June 2019.
By Karen V•
I was disappointed with the amount of time that was dedicated to teaching the actual basics of Tableau and basic data visualization best practices. Also, more emphasis was placed on using Twitter and connecting with the data viz community for the last project rather than focusing on the fundamentals of Tableau and visual design.
By luc m•
Do not take this course. The material has little to do with the present version of Tableau. The data files provided by the instructors actually crashed the latest version of Tableau 2020.2
Furthermore most of the supporting material directs the student to the tutorials provided by Tableau.
This was an absolute waste of my time
By Prateek P•
Poorly organized course. Video lectures were repeated, assignments were ambiguously stated, and quiz questions did not challenge the user to apply the knowledge presented in the course. The Tableau software is incredibly powerful, but I can not recommend using this course to learn it over other resources available online
By Mehmed P•
I was not able to complete assignments because I needed to buy Tableau Desktop for my Week 3 assignment. Tableau Public does not have certain features that are necessary to complete this rather trivial assignment.
Biggest issue is that this is a specialization course, and that means money is not refundable.
By Shashidhar G•
Not in a favor of this course as it takes much of our time in the review, and involve inconsistent score by reviewer mindset. Received an email from Coursera with a low Grade achieved score after scoring more than the threshold assessments.
Disagree with Coursera discern method on learning and review.
