Fundamentals of Data Visualisation

Data is useful but to the untrained eye, it can be meaningless. This course will teach you how to compose your data into striking visualisations and draw compelling narratives from it. 

With the help of Tableau, an industry-standard data visualisation software, you will learn to create compelling presentations and share insights using real-world data.
Pick up the fundamentals of data visualisation and discover how to present them effectively to your target audience. 

Laptops will be provided for the duration of the course.
