Event Information

Tableau I Discussion (Online via Zoom)

Tableau is a user-friendly software application used to create static or interactive visualizations and dashboards. Examples can be found here.

Tableau’s drag-and-drop interface provides tools to build a variety of visualizations with no coding required, and visualizations can be embedded in websites by copying and pasting embed code. Attendees will get started with Tableau by following along with a hands-on instructional video prior to the session. During the Tableau I Discussion, attendees will discuss and receive help on the exercises they completed.

This discussion session is offered by University Libraries and will be led by librarian Lorin Bruckner.

Note: Participation in this workshop is dependent on completing the exercises and watching the instructional video ahead of time. Registrants will receive information on how to access the video.
