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.

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 :)

It is a good introductory course. Go material to start working with Tableau. Courses are easy and assignments are basic.

more functional fundamentales data Visualization than tableau manipulation. Importing data in week 3 must be reviewed

Would be a great course if it didn't force you to create Twitter, Twitter makes the whole thing feel unprofessional

An average course! The explanations weren't much clear as the instructor's speaking pace was quite fast.

A good back grounder in data visualization theory; however, lacks a robust review of how to use Tableau.

You learn more from the readings than from the Videos, I would expected longer videos

Felt a little superficial and we didn't really learn much about Tableau.
