This course will provide participants with the skills necessary to take data from excel files and turn it into a finished, multi-page report ready to use internally or publish on the web. You will follow along as the instructor guides you through the process of creating a sample report. By the end of the course, you will know how to: import and format data, set up a data model, add visuals and filters, set up your page layout for PC and mobile view, and load your completed report to the Power Bi service and embed it into your organization’s website.
The course will focus on data and visualizations frequently used by workforce development and community service organizations. Regional and time series data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau will form the core of the data model. Visualizations (including maps, charts and tables) will present summary level data that can be drilled down on for specific insights.
Analyzing big data using charts, graphics, and images is becoming more and more necessary for decision-making. This 6-hour course introduces you to the basic features and functions of Tableau Desktop. You will learn how to develop effective and attractive data visualizations as well as dashboards that tell an engaging and informative story. By the end of the course participants will be able to improve their data insights, make relevant and attractive charts, and create the impactful dashboard graphics.
As part of the hands-on, project-based learning experience, participants will apply the knowledge they gain in order to create an interactive dashboard using their choice of dataset(s).
