Course Description

Interactive Dashboards with Excel is an online video course for data analysts, data wranglers, spreadsheet developers and managers looking to design work for decision makers. This course will teach you how to present data to leadership, so they can ask questions of the data and make decisions quickly. In addition, this course covers theoretical concepts like data visualization and how to build spreadsheets, so they’re always fast, transparent, feature-rich, and extensible. By the end of this course, you will feel confident knowing the best chart to use to present based on the data you have, and you’ll be able to turn around dashboards and charts more quickly than before. While the topics in this course may seem advanced, they’ll be presented to you in a friendly manner—and lessons are designed such that you’ll be able to apply the material immediately to your own work before finishing the course.
