Communicating Numbers: Effective visualisation of data
Numbers displayed in a less than ideal way are common in presentation slide decks, written reports and many other documents. Badly written text, poorly formatted tables, and unsuitable, unclear charts can lead to confusion, frustration, distrust, and maybe even financial loss.
But, if you follow a straightforward visualisation process and apply a set of simple guidelines, you can present your data to others as clear, relevant information which can be easily understood.
And that’s what the course, Communicating Numbers: Effective visualisation of data can help you do, by focusing on:
- Understanding why effective data visualisation works.
- Delivering the most relevant message for your audience.
- Displaying your data in the most appropriate way.
- Ensuring the message is understood by everybody who sees it.
And it does this in: 36 lectures and over 3 hours of video content; with downloadable notes and example data files; case studies and exercises; and two quizzes to evaluate your learning.
