Courses

Learn to visualize data step-by-step, from beginner to advanced.

If you want to learn about the visualization process step-by-step, these courses are for you. They are self-guided so that you can learn at your own pace.

These three courses make use of the free and open source R, which is a statistical computing language that gives you a lot of bang for the buck in terms of visualization. I mostly use base R, which is a factoid you can ignore if that means nothing to you.

You must be a member to access these courses. (If you are already a member, log in here.)
