Can you tell us how you used Tableau in your BI course?
In the BI course, I use Tableau to have students build dashboards off of OLAP cubes that they created. In the past, I really struggled with this piece and Tableau has been a life saver. I used to spend valuable class time and office hours helping students do reporting from the cubes they had created, which was not really the focus of my class. I get the same group of students again in the health informatics class. Since they are already familiar with Tableau, I have them use the tool to create a public health webpage.
How did you learn how to use Tableau?
Self-taught – it’s easy to use!
How did you teach Tableau to your students?
I don’t. I point them to the tutorials. I also have Tableau do a webinar.
What were the biggest challenges in teaching Tableau?
I honestly can’t think of any. I am your biggest fan.
