New MOOC Introduces You to the Wonderful World of Infographics & Data Visualization

Hans Rosling, a professor of global health at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, became something of an internet celebrity because of his knack for presenting data in extremely imaginative ways. As you’ll see above, he’s the master of data visualization. Now, thanks to a new MOOC from the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at the University of Texas at Austin, you can develop some of these skills yourself. The free course, Introduction to Infographics and Data Visualization, begins on January 12th and runs 6 weeks. The course is not taught by Rosling (sigh), but the current version of the course has drawn more than 2,000 people from 109 countriesIntroduction to Infographics and Data Visualization has been added to our collection of our Complete List of MOOCs and Certificate Courses.
