An in detail course for beginners on Tableau. Excellent work by the professors in terms of explaining key concepts and helping students learn the tool properly. All should definitely go for it :) !!

Absolutely outstanding course. It stretched me - late nights grappling with the data, learning Tableau, recording a blooper-free presentation. So many takes!
But this course was not just about Tableau; it was about clarifying goals, planning before diving into the data, putting yourself in the shoes of the client and good presentation principles. Great practical exercise at the end - make sure you put aside plenty of time for this.

I really enjoyed the lectures. The introduction to Tableau was broad enough to get a feel for possibilities and gave plenty of resources to further look for guidance as needed. In addition, the focus was not just on the technical tool but relaying the differences in visualization for analysis and visualization for persuasion. I enjoyed her lecturing and felt like the visual science and very specific actionable takeaways were good.

This is one of the best courses I have ever taken. It is fun and yet, it is very detailed and, yes, it takes a bit more than 2-3 hours per week.
You will learn much more than using Tableau. You will learn to ask the right questions and you will also learn how to present your data analytics results to the C-suite or whoever asked for it.
I highly recommend this to anyone, beginners and experienced business / data analysts.

I came from course 1 and 2 and I really recommend you to follow the specialization and this course, I learned Tableau from scratch and I feel satisfied with the challenges in the final project. You don't have to be an expert in Excel, but the previous knowledge and experience helps to understand certain concepts behind using Tableau. If something gets to complex, you can watch videos over and over or search in internet :)

Tableau course is very worth learning because the Tableau's visualisation method is quite different from Excel. The final project is time and effort demanding but it is a wonderful chance to utilise what you have learned during the course. One thing I didn't not enjoying about this course is the forum is not quite organised and there is a few support/ response from the instructor/ mentors like the other online classes.

This is an excellent class that covers basic data analysis and visualization with Tableau, but more importantly covers how to approach data analysis and how to present the results of a data analysis to a business audience (i.e., management executives). I would recommend this class for anybody starting in this space, or anybody who feels that their analysis is not coming through to decision-makers in their organization.

I Really enjoyed this course. It helped a lot with some fundamentals of Tableau but you won't become an expert in it. However what you do get is a brilliant insight into how to run a data project with some best practices. I thought at times the videos covered concepts too quickly even with the ability to rerun the video at times there was a lot to take on. But all in all a very good course well worth the effort.

Very well taught course about using Tableau, providing tableau license for the Specialization (6 months). The lectures are well executed, concepts well explained and referenced materials provided. The most fun part are the assignments using real world datasets by Dognition. The course introduced me to very interesting visualization tool used in Data analytics. I enjoyed this course and took a great deal out of it.

Well structured course. What you are being tested on is well taught during the course so no sense of confusion whether 'do I need to know something already'. Many example of real life business questions and references to other good works. Complete focus on being able to DO things. Free six months Tableau license is great for practice beyond the course. Makes you feel well rounded at the end of the course.

This course is designed so well. Starting from theory concepts in week 1, there is a smooth transition to Tableau software practicals in week 2 & 3. Week 4 guides you on presentation preparation and it was very helpful for me because I'm just about to enter the IT industry. If you are completely unaware of Tableau, I recommend you should definitely take this course. Thanks to all the course mentors!

So far the best course in this specialisation, actually also among the courses I took in Coursera. First, and final modules provide some skills and knowledge that will be useful to any analyst, or any professional. Rest of modules make a smooth introduction to Tableau. A perfect starter for a new concept. Productive quizzes, well-explained videos and good structure. Absolutely recommended!

Definitely a great class in many aspect
Very well and clearly presented.
Not just a tool but an approch : This is what we need !
Good link proportion between : Theory and practice.
Good level of difficulty.
One of the best class I've followed so far.
Only downside : it says you get a temporary student licence for Tableau, which you finally don't get.

The class was very informative. It also teaches presentation methods and tips on effective presentations. The material is covered well. The quizzes and practice questions also help you dive deeper into comprehending the conte. I like that I still have access to the material even after completing the course since I often refer back to the lessons.

The instructor was quite articulate and well-organized. She moved a bit fast but then every lecture deserved to be watched at least twice. This course was an excellent introduction to Tableau. My only very mild criticism is that her examples were pretty much all Mac-based which led to some confusion and adjustment for WIndows users like me.

Just starting week 3 and I've already learned a ton about approaching data visualizations while leveraging Tableau. This course does an excellent job of demystifying the beautiful and powerful tool that is Tableau. Even after only a week or so of playing around on Tableau I feel fairly comfortable in using it in my own work.

Excellent course! The videos are easy to follow along, and Dr. Borg is great at explaining the material. Also, it was fun to learn how to use Tableau, and develop a thorough understanding of the program. Highly recommend this course if you are interested in data analytics, data visualization, and/or business presentations.

I learned quite a lot from this course, not only about Tableau, but also about effective communication of data analyses and insights. All of my business presentations going forward will be significantly more effective because of what I learned in this course. Surprisingly challenging course but well worth the effort.

The knowledge of how to present data analysis using Tableau is very helpful in learning the work in real world. The professor is very knowledgable about the analytical & presentation skills and Tableau. She intertwine them in a very smooth and interesting way that has been very helpful in an on-line course.

One of the best courses on Coursera: the content covers not just the usage of Tableau but also the objectives heading into using Tableau as well as the presentation of the results one gets from Tableau. Most of all, it is evident that the trainers know their stuff and had a lot of fun putting this together!

Este curso não apenas ensina técnicas para uso do software Tableau, como eu esperara a princípio, mas analisa cada um dos passos necessários para executar um projeto com excelência, desde a compreensão do escopo do trabalho à sua entrega. Excelente! Superou em muito minhas expectativas!

This is the very first on-line course that has kept me engaged from beginning to end. The business problems we had to solve are perfect as hands-on practice for solutions some of us must later implement in our day to day jobs. Overall I feel like it was a fantastic learning experience.

I have not yet completed the course, but I am LOVING this class. The video tutorials that I can view while working in Tableau make learning very easy and very fun. I think it is great that we are given a 6-month access to Tableau professional and am excited to continue the course.

well designed and impressive courses! I learn a lot about Tableau technique and the whole process of data analysis, including preparing the data analysis process with scientific guidance, making persuasive illustration and giving a high quality presentation!! I have learned a lot!

The instructor provided a data set from an actual business to use in the Tableau analysis. I felt that the videos and supplemental information provided valuable instruction on data analysis in the Tableau software and the communication of the results. This was a great class.
