You are an experienced Tableau user who wants to learn more about best practices for sharing information and insights. The Visual Analytics course helps Tableau users design visualizations that viewers can easily understand and use. This course uses Tableau to develop and discuss visualizations, but does not include instruction on how to use Tableau products—we expect that you already know how to navigate and use Tableau.

Skills Gained

The aim of this course is to strengthen your analytical skills and gain an understanding of visualization best practices. You will become a better analyst, designer, and communicator. At the end of this class, the student will be able to:

  • Design visualizations to effectively leverage sensory and short-term memory.
  • Design visualizations to inform viewers without misleading.
  • Effectively use chart types to answer specific questions.
  • Design dashboards and stories using visual best practices.

Who Can Benefit

Prerequisites

You should already know how to use Tableau well. Ideally, you have taken Desktop I: Fundamentals and Desktop II: Intermediate courses, but this is not an official prerequisite. Be aware that we won’t introduce you to product features or walk you through step-by-step instructions.

  • Students are encouraged to bring in their own data or visualization examples, but this is not a requirement.

AZ-300 course experience was good . Eylem Uysal was very good, the best instructor and i had really good experience attending course and classes with Eylem.

Presented in an easy way to digest information. Labs tied together the learnings.

It would be better if the classroom had two power point screens so the instructor could have two screens shown to the class at the same time to reduce confusion switching back and forth

Overall the course material was great and the labs were hands on, which us nice when learning new material

PLEASE, provide recordings of the sessions for us to be able to review after the course.
