Learn how to visualize data the right way from experts working with the world’s largest companies.
I benefited the most from the class from the depth of knowledge presented on design. My background has been focused on data research and quantifying the unknowns. This course did a great job combining practical insights with foundational principles. This will help me use design principles to more effectively communicate data findings. It reiterates the focus on telling the audience just what they need to know, nothing more, nothing less.

Meet one-on-one each week with course instructors for even more individual attention.
The first module covers the visual system, how memory works, and how humans create patterns.
Learn how to draw a viewer's attention where you want it so they can take away what's important from the visualization.
The second module focuses on the primary graph types, best practices of graph selection, why these selections are optimal, and how to know which graph is best suited for the analysis at hand.
Choose the right tools to convey the message.
The third module dives into basic design principles and how to apply them specifically to data visualization for optimal performance.
Understand how to remove the visual noise and accentuate the data.
The fourth and final module is about taking the principles of the first three modules and applying them to a real-world dashboard or report.
The rubber meets the road as we implement our learnings.
You'll be able to use this time each week to ask questions, review course materials, workshop ideas, or discuss any other data-related challenges directly with your instructor(s).
Foundational data visualization principles can’t be taught in a bubble. Instead, they need to be learned and applied in a practical way — one that’s relevant to both the environment and tooling available.

Good question. This course is designed for anyone in an enterprise environment—individual contributor or leader—who now finds themselves working with data on a regular basis (nearly everyone these days). Yet, this course has been particularly useful for enterprise teams, several of whom have decided to enroll in Data Viz 101 as a team-based educational opportunity.
Data Viz 101 is taught by RevUnit team members who, in addition to teaching this course, are actively leading large-scale, enterprise data visualization and data management initiatives with a number of Fortune 500 organizations.
The fall cohort will start on November 3 and finish on December 3; there will be no classes and/or activity during the week of Thanksgiving (11/23-11/27).
You should plan to devote approximately 3-4 hours each week for the length of the four-week course. Two of those hours will include virtual, “classroom” instruction on Tuesdays and Thursdays, while you’ll likely spend another hour each week meeting with your instructor in a one-on-one setting.
We believe so, but the experience is different for every student. Still, here’s what one recent student (the Lead BI Analyst at a Fortune 100 organization) had to say after finishing the course: “Amazing course! This would have been HUGE to get this kind of training when I was just starting out in UI work."
Yes! You can definitely find lower-cost and/or similar courses out there, and frankly, we’d actually encourage you to take some of them. Yet, this course is particularly unique in the fact that it’s designed for enterprise data practitioners by enterprise data practitioners. We also take great care to create an intimate, instructor-led learning experience that caters to the individual needs of each student, which takes a fair bit of time. We’re confident that the value you’ll receive from this course vastly outweighs your investment.
