After many many months of writing, planning, gathering examples, designing curriculum, preparing materials and recording, I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my course on Lynda.com, titled Data Visualization Fundamentals.

In this course, beginners to the field of data visualization will learn a broad range about why visual communications is so important, including some of the brain science behind this, and how to take intangible data and make it relatable, visual and approachable for your audience. With over 3 ½ hours of content, the lessons include quick studies of topics like:

—Channeling your audience
—Understanding your data
—Determining the information hierarchy
—Sketching and wireframing your ideas
—Defining your narrative
—Using typography, color, contrast, and shape to convey meaning
—Making your visualization interactive
