Overview

Sign up to Coursera courses for free Learn how

One of the skills that characterizes great business data analysts is the ability to communicate practical implications of quantitative analyses to any kind of audience member. Even the most sophisticated statistical analyses are not useful to a business if they do not lead to actionable advice, or if the answers to those business questions are not conveyed in a way that non-technical people can understand.

In this course you will learn how to become a master at communicating business-relevant implications of data analyses. By the end, you will know how to structure your data analysis projects to ensure the fruits of your hard labor yield results for your stakeholders. You will also know how to streamline your analyses and highlight their implications efficiently using visualizations in Tableau, the most popular visualization program in the business world. Using other Tableau features, you will be able to make effective visualizations that harness the human brain’s innate perceptual and cognitive tendencies to convey conclusions directly and clearly. Finally, you will be practiced in designing and persuasively presenting business “data stories” that use these visualizations, capitalizing on business-tested methods and design principles.

Data Visualization and Communication with Tableau is the third course in Duke University's "Excel to MySQL: Analytic Techniques for Business" specialization offered on Coursera.

The final week is devoted to a peer-reviewed assignment and has no new lecture content. The course provides you with a free temporary license for the desktop version of Tableau. You can get through his …

I'm currently enrolled and so far, so good. It's one of the best 'Data Analysis' I've come across online - and you can take it for free! What's not to like? And Jana's delivery is never dull and engaging. And as a little plus, she's easy on the eye :) Recommended!

It's a great class if you're interested in data visualization and want to learn how to use Tableau, a tool which makes it easier for companies to get useful data insights visually. Very hands on and practical learning.

I fully agree with Gregory. This course has the best video lectures. Week 2 and 3 are technical aspects of tableau. Week 1 and 4 are functional aspects of visualization which is of equal importance.

If you have just a sec. I want to share my weight loss story with you,

As anyone will do, I just googled about the best ways to cut fat fast, I remember I get this on the 5th post of the top page on google. There was a lot or may I say immense positive reviews about it.

I desperately want it to be true but my smart brain keeps reminding me that the reviews can be written by affiliates looking for commissions.

Therefore, I decided to do research on this program, I tried my level best to extract every single information about it. I also talked to some peo…

The instructors don't provide enough instruction, there isn't a textbook - just their retarded videos and quizzes.

Massive waste of $80.
