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.
