TOP REVIEWS FROM INFORMATION VISUALIZATION: APPLIED PERCEPTION
Excellent course for someone who is getting into data visualisation or business intelligence tools. Very well curated for the best of learning experience. Thanks a lot to Enrico Bertini and others!
This is a great continuation to the specialization, it seems to drag along longer though and maintaining interest is a little bit difficult sometimes. The PEER reviews are also a pain to complete.
I liked the approach of this course through human perception in Information Visualization and how they illustrate the subjects with everyday examples.
I never thought, there would be so much to learn about color research & the way we perceive it. Excellent course, thanks to the team!
