"As my first introduction into data visualization, this was a great experience as it was presented well [thorough and with humor!], and truly encourages me to continue exploring this avenue. Having a book to follow along with, the ability to practice at home, and an instructor who had real world experience to answer questions were most beneficial." Maricela Mejia

"The course textbook was very detailed. The instructor was well versed in using, teaching, and explaining Tableau. I appreciated the step by step instruction and walk-through activities. Appreciate that we are able to access Tableau from home to continue to explore and grow more familiar with the product. I am so grateful and impressed that this course was offered at Harper.
