Being data literate means having the necessary competencies to work with data.

Regardless of your field of expertise – if you want a rewarding career path – you will certainly benefit from these skills.

Any manager or business executive worth their salt is able to articulate a problem that can be solved using data.

So, if you want to build a successful career in any industry, acquiring full data literacy should certainly be one of your key objectives.

Someone who is data literate would have the ability to:

o Articulate a problem that can potentially be solved using data

o Understand the data sources involved

o Check the adequacy and fitness of data involved

o Interpret the results of an analysis and extract insights

o Make decisions based on the insights

o Explain the value generated with a use case

You will acquire all these skills by taking this course. Together, we will expand your quantitative skills and will ensure you have a solid preparation.

The course is organized into four main chapters. First, you will start with understanding data terminology – we will discuss the different types of data, data storage systems, and the technical tools needed to analyze data.

Then, we will proceed with showing you how to use data. We’ll talk about Business Intelligence (BI), Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as various machine and deep learning techniques.

In the third chapter of the course, you will learn how to comprehend data, perform data quality assessments, and read major statistics (measures of central tendency and measures of spread).

We conclude this course with an extensive section dedicated to interpreting data. You will become familiar with fundamental analysis techniques such as correlation, simple linear regression (what r-squared and p-values indicate), forecasting, statistical tests, and many more.

By the end of the course, you will learn how to understand and use the language of data.

Your instructor for this class will be Olivier Maugain. Very few online courses are taught by people with his professional track record. Olivier has worked in various industries, such as software distribution, consulting, and consumer goods. In his current role as Decision Intelligence Manager at a major European retailer, he supports the organization in making better and faster decisions using data.

You’re about to enroll in a course that can boost your entire career!

This is really good stuff, but the personae on the screen is a bit distracting as the mouth doesn't coincide with the words. Other than that, great content!

It would be convenient to be able to pull a transcript of the entire weeks lesson instead of just one 6-minute videos worth of transcript. A master transcript of 1 week's materials would be a great reference tool and would allow for easier key word searching for topic review.

The only thing I would add would be actual practical guidance on how to use / calculate some of these methods

At this point I think it may be a little advanced for me but I am learning at the same time so I will continue and I will also need to study maths on the side to refresh what I can't remember

The course is easy to understanding and interactive for beginner. I really enjoyed the use cases and the comparison with everyday activities, to help a beginner relate to the lesson better.

Its is understandable how data literacy is essential especially to give better reference prior taking a decission. As a company, having employees with data literacy awareness is certainly a plus point and the course is really an eye opening for us to understand that better

The information was organized well and flowed nicely throughout the course. It is not a particularly useful course for my profession, but I can see how others could greatly benefit from it.

Pretty good to go over some basics of data and know terms that a data analyst would use. A nice introduction for Analytics majors like myself

It was vital information. I'm more knowledgeable about how data works and is stored. I look forward to learning more

The data literacy course provided much more insight involved in the specifics of data and many of the components that I did not know before.

I am enjoying the course because every aspect of it is broken down to the level of my understanding and it is rich in content every.

I volunteered to participate in this data literacy pilot although it is probably not a course I would have chosen to take. So far, I'm pleasantly surprised to find it more useful to me than I expected, and definitely believe it has utility for new analysts. Structure, maneuverability, and presentation of the materials are excellent.
