Information Visualization MOOC > Begins January 28 2014

Overview

This course provides an overview about the state of the art in information visualization. It teaches the process of producing effective visualizations that take the needs of users into account.

This year, the course can be taken for three Indiana University credits as part of the Online Data Science Program just announced by the School of Informatics and Computing. Students interested in applying to the program can find more information here.

Among other topics, the course covers:

  • Data analysis algorithms that enable extraction of patterns and trends in data
  • Major temporal, geospatial, topical, and network visualization techniques
  • Discussions of systems that drive research and development
Everyone who registers gains free access to the Scholarly Database (26 million paper, patent, and grant records) and the Sci2 Tool (100+ algorithms and tools).

Schedule

The 2014 course will begin on Tuesday, January 28, 2014. We will announce the precise schedule in the coming weeks.

Students will again have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers to complete data visualization assignments from real-world clients. [snip]
