  2. Agree to the terms
  3. Copy your Tableau Key from the email from your instructor and paste it in.
  4. You may have to fill in some information (use your email address if asked)

Tableau’s site has a series of quick start guides and video-based training. If you want to do something that we don’t cover in class, check there.
