In this course, you will analyze and apply essential design principles to your Tableau visualizations. This course assumes you understand the tools within Tableau and have some knowledge of the fundamental concepts of data visualization. You will define and examine the similarities and differences of exploratory and explanatory analysis as well as begin to ask the right questions about what’s needed in a visualization. You will assess how data and design work together, including how to choose the appropriate visual representation for your data, and the difference between effective and ineffective visuals. You will apply effective best practice design principles to your data visualizations and be able to illustrate examples of strategic use of contrast to highlight important elements. You will evaluate pre-attentive attributes and why they are important in visualizations. You will exam the importance of using the "right" amount of color and in the right place and be able to apply design principles to de-clutter your data visualization....

This course really changed my perspective in how to create visualization not just using Tableau but in every visualization application. I'm very happy I could take it and learned from it.

The course uncovers the science of the design for data. It is certainly very helpful for my job where have to present a lot of data in different perspectives for senior management.

A littler redundant when you compare it to the previoud courses.

The map part is good.

This course is only useful if you have no experience visualizing data.

Good backgrounder, but should have incorporated Tableau a bit more.

I think the course must be more practical and less theoretical.

Good for an introductory course, needs more practice exercises.

I enjoyed visualization until I took this course. This is the worst Coursera course I have taken so far. Though course contents were good, the course was super disorganized. Tableau version used in videos was from several years ago, so it can be confusing if you try to follow along with current version. Many reading materials mentioned in video could not be found in Resources area, but showed up in quizzes; same goes for other sample data (such as Anscombe Quartet data). Week 3 video referred to Cholera map presented in a prior week, but that material was not presented in week 1 or 2. Quiz answers referred to wrong modules to review. Finally, steps for Tableau Desktop installation provided in the course no longer works (and took a lot of googling to find the right method). Overall, the bad product experience took so much away from the course materials, I would not recommend this course.

I was initially disappointed by the focus on design principles with a limited emphasis on implementing these principles in Tableau. However, I realized that the structure of this course and its focus on Gestalt Principles and leveraging pre-attentive attributes were valuable. The problem was that each weekly module concludes with a quiz, but there's only one peer graded assignment for the whole class. That assignment includes instructions like "use one of the 9 design principles in a visualization that…". If the course was restructured so that there were a peer graded assignment to build a tableau visualization at the end of each weekly module it would have been much better.

No Feedback from quizes, it doesn't even show you what you have answered, makes it very tedious to study the material. I like the questions during the video, that is an addition that ought to be used more often, because it forces you to remember and learn faster.

Some concepts were explained poorly (e.g. Gestalt principles, pre-attentive attributes). Peer review was frustrating - easy to fail the week 4 assignment due to the 5-point rating scale for some parts, which invites reviewers to deduct points arbitrarily.

A lot of the material covered in this session was common sense. I also didn't learn any valuable skills that will help me design Tableau dashboards

The peer graded assignment is far to volatile in this context. It should either be graded binary (done / not done) or done by staff....

It feels like the video tutorials were rushed and hard to follow this time.

All it's about visual design. I was expecting more deep on tableau usage.

Week 4 was too theoretical and boring

Too much psychology theory part. I want to learn Tableau rather than how System I or System II works in my brain. I read Kahneman's book when I have leisure time, but I don't want to do such multiple choice problems in a computer class.

This is completely theoretical. It would be better to include some practical work at the end of every week. It's completely boring. Try to include practical contents.

I came here to learn how to use Tableau. This course didn't teach me much in Tableau - instead, it was packed with design theory that isn't very useful in practice.

Quiz references readings that are not listed anywhere in the module. Content of videos is helpful but the arrangement of this course is poor

The over-emphasization of theory and lack of application in this module made me feel sick.

It is more about THeory and they did not explain Tableau
