Data Analytics and Visualization (DC2)

In this module, you will learn about the difference between infographics (data analytics) and data visualization — which is something most people always think are the same thing. They’re not. And if you know the difference, you’ll know how to play to their individual and collaborative strengths. You will be asked to analyze a number of data sets which will then be converted into simple infographics.
