Tableau: How do you incorporate data storytelling?
Danilo: As a final piece of work, I usually request a storytelling, where I ask them to search for information that is relative to and adds value to Brazilian society.
And so they construct a storytelling. They set some parameters, which need to have at least two dashboards, some explanatory views, other exploratory views—and they concatenate all of this into a story.
Tableau: How do students react when they use Tableau?
Danilo: I really see that they want to use Tableau in other disciplines, they want to use Tableau in the course completion work, in the final work. They want to take Tableau to the company they work for.
Practical examples where you bring a business need, and that business need is resolved using Tableau—I have no words to express how perfect it is for the students.
Tableau: How has Tableau impacted your course? What are your plans for the future?
Danilo: What I try to do is to merge theory with practice, and Tableau enables me to do that, without needing much knowledge or preparation time.
Now, with the use of Tableau, in the last two years, I have felt that every day they like the course more and more. They love to interact with the course. I realize that the course has gained more fans, students are more excited to understand new things, and now I intend to add Vizable to the course.
I can see it in my results, I can see it in the polls and in how much the students have enjoyed the course.
