Microsoft Excel: Data Visualization with Charts & Graphs

Microsoft Excel: Data Visualization with Charts & Graphs

taught by Chris Dutton

Excel is an incredibly powerful, robust, and dynamic data visualization platform for those willing to think beyond rows, columns, and primitive pie charts.

This course provides a comprehensive deep dive into 20+ chart types available in Excel 2016. I’ll show you when, why, and how to use each chart, introduce key data visualization best practices, and guide you through interactive, hands-on demos and exercises every step of the way.

We'll kick things off by exploring each of the 20+ chart types that Excel 2016 has to offer, including: 

  • Bar & Column charts
  • Histograms & Pareto charts
  • Line charts & trend lines 
  • Area charts
  • Pies & Donuts
  • Scatter plots & Bubble charts
  • Box & Whisker charts
  • Tree Maps & Sunbursts
  • Waterfall & Funnel charts
  • Radar & Stock charts
  • Heat maps, 3-D Surface & contour charts
  • Chloropleths & Geospatial maps
  • Custom combo charts & graphs
  • Sparklines
  • And more...

From there we'll dive into a series of 12+ advanced Excel demos guaranteed to turn you into an absolute data viz rockstar. These aren't "textbook" demos that you can find on YouTube; these are projects adapted from actual, award-winning work featured by Microsoft, MIT, and the New York Times. I've built my analytics career around data visualization, and I can help you do the same.

Whether you're looking for a quick primer, trying to diversify your Excel skill set, or hoping to step up your data visualization game in a major way, this course is for you. In fact, if you don't learn something brand new in this course, I will make sure you get your money back AND give you a virtual high-five for checking it out. You literally can't lose.
