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....

Amazing course, amazing instructors and assignments. I really enjoyed working with Tableau.

You may experience some confusion for some assignments but don't worry! Just use the discussion boards :)

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.

Expected the course to focus more on Tableau techniques but not bad in terms of an introduction to the importance of data visualization.

it was too short and didnt explain tableau functionality that well. the last module was unnecessary in context of this course and topic.

Average and overpriced as with all their courses. Go to Udemy better value ; course content is more practical and teachers are engaging.

It is at very elementary level. I was expecting a bit more exploration in tableau tools. So, that expectation wasn't fulfilled.

Very introdutory, very little time exploring Tableau. It is good for beginners in data analysis, for the fundamental concepts.

It is a good introductory course to start with. It has a lot of potential, but I feel it could've been a lot more challenging.

Wasn't very detailed. Felt like they couldve done alot more with the course.

Also, i fee like they assumed we know the basics.

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

Forced to create a Twitter account to complete the required tweet in the final assignment. Otherwise 5 stars

Great concept! But they should include an alternative section from where we can download the data source.

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.

to be honest, it is not very helpful for people who is interested in how to use tableau to do analysis.

Solid if dated content. Clunky presentation at times. Course layout and bugs could be improved.

The course material was great, but maybe should be more interactive questions/build-in quiz

I think it is a bit too basic and the course does not show much of tableau at this moment.

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