This course completely changed the way I look at data visualization and story telling with data. The skill set that I developed can easily be applied to real life and improve my value as an analysts.
Really tangible and useful. I have been able to take what I've learned in this specialization so far to create dashboards at work. I'm really pleased with how much I've learned in such a short time!

Good course but could be improved: insist more from the first lesson in Course 1 to have students create a folder for their Tableau Course and save everything - also save frequently during the use as the software crashes easily.
The example is ACME inc. is traditional I understand that, but oh boy, is it a boring business problem. Something a little bit less oh hum would be more interesting (discounted orders influence profitability? Really? No, I can't believe it!)

This course will not make you an expert on Tableau and will not bring you even close to visualizations you see people create on Tableau Public website. However, it has far more content than previous courses in the visualization, so that's definitely an improvement. In general, I don't think it is very well designed and definitely not the best course I've taken on Coursera.

All things considered, the course is well done. However, I have encountered two issues. Firstly, there is some disorganization involving updated datasets throughout the course. Secondly, most of the students do not actively engage in either the work or the peer-assessment, but that is likely more a Coursera-wide issue.

Content and instruction was great. There were some issues with the way the videos were edited (some were extremely long and others very short, sometimes audio didn't match what was happening on screen) which made it sometimes difficult to go back if you wanted to review or re-watch something.

The explanations were good - but this grading system is really quite poor - some people don't know what they are grading - others are just not interested - seems rather random whether you get all the points or no points

Course was good overall but the sections on Tableau tool were sometimes hard to follow. More step-by-step detail needed. Sometimes the transcripts didn't match what the instructor was staying.

Overall, great instruction on setting up dashboards and stories in Tableau. The theoretical instruction on story building was not as helpful as the actual practice Tableau lessons.

Creating Dashboards and Storytelling with Tableau was a nice course from UC Davis I liked the course structure and also the final week 4 project.
by Marcello B•
Wide view of storytelling theme. Perhaps it could be more short in some points, but in summary a really useful course.
by Paul H•
A great hands on course but also a course that challenges you to think about what makes a presentation memorable.

Overall it was a good course. The last week was very boring. But I enjoyed doing the PGA assignments.

This is a good course. However, I think it need a lot of updates for the current version of Tableau
by Lara K•
This course had an effective combination of lectures and hand-on demonstrations.
by Han X•
Much better than Course 3 due to much more hands on learning and practice.
by Carlos P•
I would have like to have seen a few more storytelling examples.
by Scott D•
Great balance of theory, instruction, and reference material.

good class, but need step by step to teach to do the project
by Dmitry K•
More engaging than the last one. Still, need more practice

Sometimes the course is repetitive, but it good at all.
by Christophe H•
Many tools and methods beyond the power of Tableau
