A comprehensive course with various techniques of visualizations and presentation. It introduced me to the world of Tableau, and its possibilities to prepare interactive visualizations and dashboards.
This course taught me a lot about data visualisations, dashboarding and presenting to an audience in an extremely insightful way. I was well presented and well worth the time and effort I put into it.

I was expecting quite more of Tableau in this course, I leave feeling my knowledge in this topic is still very little. There was a lot on making good visual (irrespective of the tool being used) and making presentations, but the Tableau side of this course, which was the star tool to be learned, ended up being a bit dissapointing.
I did not like this course whatsoever.
The information about visualization and presentations are excessive (no need to be genius to pick right font and color). At the same time, the crutial skills (Tableau) are given insufficiently.

I would have rather had more hands-on reps with Tableau projects than what we received....an extensive lesson on how to give a Powerpoint presentation.

Was expecting more hands on for visualization.

Learning Tableau was challenging but exciting. I can tell it is a very complex and nuanced platform that will require a lot of practice and patience to become proficient at, but the course did a great job of introducing it. I also got the bravery, through the prodding of the course, to take my plunge into power point. Instructor was clear and did a great job stressing the importance of presentation dos and don'ts.

This course is suffering in the reviews as it is a change of pace and style from the previous courses. The time allocated to Tableu is effective but it is only a small component of the material. A larger element of the course is design considerations and presentation guidelines. These topics were covered well although again pitched toward introductory learning. The instructor brings an academic/university theoretical approach at times which differs from the practical focus of previous courses. At times the assessment material is focussed too heavily on semantic differences and definitions rather than a higher level of conceptual understanding. Overall I thought the course was well structured and effective.

Really hoped there would be more Tableau assignments and hands on exercises. However, I am really grateful that you showed us Tableau public, how to access/download it, and the tutorials that are accessible on their website.

Too much repetition of concepts and explanations.

This was a pretty frustrating course. I understand certain things need to be repeated and put into context but Google really went overboard here. Some of the test questions were very wordy and confusing compared to the previous courses. As other have mentioned, they under utilize videos and put an emphasis on reading very uninteresting concepts and theories about presentation. Maybe it's because I'm familiar with some of the material that I found it uninteresting and not engaging. I hope Google reassess their approach to this course.

Don't go into this course expecting to learn Tableau. Fortunately I had prior Tableau experience but Tableau is only really briefly mentioned and even then the tutorials are rushed. You spend half the course learning how to speak and communicate which is fine, but disappointing that there is such little Tableau practice.
This course had some good moments, but the material was very basic and more about presentation skills. The quizes were "buggy" and not written very professionally. It could be improved by having an end of class project that used Tabelau and demonstrated proficiency vs just answering basic multiple choice questions.

Too much time spent on basic presentation skills and not enough with using tools like Tableau. That has been my experience with all the courses in this certificate. There is over-explanation of basic concepts, and much less time spent on more in-depth technical skills like SQL, Kaggle, Spreadsheets, and Tableau.

The course is good for, getting tips to make a presentation and how to present it among stakeholders,But, It very little contents on how we could build that visualization in Tableau, all it have , just 2/3 methods to build visuals. It has very little content of Tableau.

Horrible instructor. Waste of time and money, this course is far bellow the quality of the rest in this professional certificate program.
von Wen L•
Should have more More Tableau exercises. The sound of video is very low. It is most disappointed course.
von Nan H•
More talk about theory but less practical skills and techniques on teaching how to use tableau.
von Denis Z•
Nothing new, commonplace concepts. More Tableau exercises will be a good.
von Bubíková K•
A huge waste of time again. Almost no practical excercises with Tableau.

The instruction was excellent, and the curriculum was great! It alternated among video lectures, hands-on learning, and reading assignments; so it never becomes tedious. You get the opportunity to learn from several people at Google, including their Director of Analytics; so you really are learning from the experts in the field.
The class exceeded my expectations, not only teaching me how to use Tableau (which was my primary goal in taking the class) but also teaching me principles of design AND how to deliver an effective data presentation to stakeholders. The principles of design equipped me to optimize my data visualizations for any audience, and the presentation skills prepared me to incorporate my data visualizations into a larger data story aimed at resolving real business problems.
I can't say enough good things about this course. I will end with one note about the time it takes to complete the class. If you are working full-time, then you will be able to stay on pace to complete the class in the expected four weeks. But if you are learning full-time, then the class is doable in 4 days. You can make it a goal to complete each Week of material in a single day. Some might say that is too much information in a short period of time, but if you take good notes, bookmark the online resources, and print the other resources; you can reference the information anytime you need when you are creating future visualizations and presentations.

This course was really well done with plenty of practice in tableau and the videos were very informative. I was interesting taking an online course about presentations without being able to get feedback from others on a presentation that we put together, but I think the course still worked well as it was presented.
von Avi G•
Hey this was really good. I think the considerations presented were really helpful to contextualize what to expect in a presentation situation. Nice outlines of tools and strategies to employ in the future.
von Andrew K•
I enjoyed the course, and learned many tips to improve my approach to creating presentations, how content should be added to slides, and how to improve presentation skills. Thank you!
von Hamza S•
really awesome explaining. i got good education from Mr. Kevin who explained smoothly and easily how to visualize data using Tableau, in addition to the skills in the presentation
von Senaka S•
This was a great course. I encouraged me to review my current presentation style. And I now know how to improve on presenting myself and my work. Thanks!!

I loved the way the instructor shared the information, the tips and tricks provided and the useful resources and readings
