We use Tableau as it is a simple and accessible tool. Tableau is a visual analytics digital platform that helps students use data to solve complex data-driven problems and empowers people and organisations to make the most of their data and tell stories through Tableau’s data visualisations. Not all skills learned are exclusive to Tableau, and Tableau skills are transferable across other programs, platforms and industries. However, it is important to note that knowledge of Tableau is attractive to future employers in various industries.
Tableau connects to data sources, extracts data into sources, simplifies the data to make suitable visualisations of the data. Tableau is considered a relatively simple-to-learn data analysis and visualisation tool.
Tableau Mobile is the companion app for Tableau Cloud and Tableau Server, giving students access to Tableau on the go. It is available on Android and iOS, and lets students interact with the content on their site to discover data insights either online or even offline.
