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.

  • Design visualizations to inform viewers without misleading.
  • Effectively use chart types to answer specific questions.
  • Design dashboards and stories using visual best practices.
