Data visualization is the art and science of presenting data in a clear, engaging, and meaningful way. It can help you communicate insights, tell stories, and persuade audiences. Organizations tasked with producing, releasing, and analyzing large amounts of data can more effectively understand and disseminate their work by better visualizing their data. Too often, organizations make visualizing their results an afterthought secondary to the analysis, which ultimately limits the effective relay of information.
But how do you design data visualizations for different audiences and contexts? In this course, you will learn the fundamental skills to create better, more effective graphs, charts, diagrams. You will learn how to attract and direct your user’s attention around the page, screen, or slide. To help you move beyond the standard line, bar, and pie chart, you will learn the broad range of data visualizations available to you. You will learn how to make your graphs clearer and easier to read. But with the practical, hands-on portion of the course, you’ll be able to create more than 30 different types of graphs and charts in Excel and Power BI.
Built from a practical point of view, our expert trainers will showcase real-world examples and techniques that you can use right away. You’ll learn the steps, formulas, and tricks from world-class experts that will save you hours of time on a weekly basis. Let us help you get the data-cleaning out of the way, so that you can focus on the satisfying part of the job: providing the insights that you were actually hired to deliver.
This course starts at the beginning and is intended for people who analyze and communicate data, but who may have never thought deeply about the best ways to visualize and communicate those data. No coding skills, design skills, or data skills needed: the only requirement is an interest in better data communication.
Simply put, you won’t find a more comprehensive introductory data visualization course anywhere! Plus, everything you learn in applicable to both Excel and Power BI.
This course is for anyone interested in data communication and who wants to better understand the general design process regardless of their data analysis or software skills, including:
This course will be released in two phases. Phase 1 is now available at a special introductory rate of $189 US for the first year of access. Anyone who registers in Phase 1 will have automatic access to the Phase 2 content at no additional charge as soon as it becomes available. Once Phase 2 is released, the price of the course will increase to the regular rate of $270 US for the first year of access. (Please note that the annual renewal rate of $69 US remains the same for both Phase 1 and Phase 2.)
All of the content released in Phase 1 is created by Jon Schwabish. The first half of the course covers key data visualization concepts and explains different types of charts and graphs, including when and how each type may be used. The second half of the course provides practical, step-by-step coverage of creating some of the most common types of graphs and charts in Excel. These lessons include downloadable example files so you can work along with the videos.
Phase 2 is scheduled to be released by the end of November 2023. The content in this phase will expand upon the practical examples that were released in Phase 1. Ken Puls and Matt Allington will teach you how to create both the new and previously-covered data visualizations using data stored in the Power Pivot Data Model and/or Power BI. We estimate that there will be 6-7 additional hours of content added with Phase 2.
