  • From my perspective, the most important takeaway from this course is what is the data science, how to collect, use and analyze the data and why data is important in today’s businesses. I can use data science to recommend the right product to the right customer to enhance business and helps in customer segmentation. If I had to explain to a future scholar about this course, I would say this course is this course is interesting, it can help you discover hidden patterns from the raw data and used to make decisions and predictions.

  • Data Science is a course that teaches a student to better understand data as a whole. We not only learn how to decipher different types of data, but we also learn how to analyze and sort through data as well. Having this skill is useful in many areas and learning these skills allows the student to have a better understanding of how to use the data for whatever they may need it for. Through this course you are able to get hands on experience with computer based data tools which equips you to solve problems more efficiently and have effective arguments.

  • What I learned from this course was that Data Science is getting more and more indispensable in the modern business world. People trust the reliability of the data and, at the same time, doubt the source of the data. Through MIS 0855, I got a great starting point of using data analyzing tools, suck like Tableau and Excel. I also got a chance to present the analyzed data by creating info-graphs through Piktochart. During this process, I learned how to present the data to audiences in a persuasive way. MIS 0855 is a determining starting point for every college student to know about the data around them. Through MIS 0855, the students would be able to gain a general skill of interpreting the data and to present the data in a simple and clear way.

  • I think an important takeaway from this course is learning to become comfortable and understanding how to use Excel and Tableu. This course allows students to explore and practice logging in information through Excel and Tableu from step by step in class activities. The class introduces students the general understanding of data science and give examples of how it is used in today’s workforce.

  • The most important thing I have learned from this class was working with data. Before taking this class, I rarely had an idea how to work with excel file and Tableau. Now I know how to clean and organize a dataset before creating a visualization. If I am asked what this class is about, I would explain that this class is about working with data, also a miscellaneous acknowledgment about the world of data that is a part of people’s lives in today’s world.

  • The ability to learn how to use Tableau was an important takeaway from this class. Tableau is a powerful tool that is helpful in the data science world. This class consisted of learning how to sort, clean, and look for patterns within datasets. It was interesting learning how to interpret the data and use it to answer the questions being asked. This class is about the many uses of data and how valuable it is to the business world. The significance of data science will continue to grow, so this class developed a base understanding of the subject.

  • I will take away from this course the ability to use tableau. It is a tool that I have learned can be very useful in the business world as well as in the data science realm. Working with data will become a necessary skill we can all use, especially as we continue into the next decades and I am glad I got to get me feet wet with this course.

  • The most important takeaway from this course is the fact that we learned about data and many diffrent ways to use the data and understand what it is.

Overall, this class opened up a new perspective for me that I had never seen before.

  • The biggest take away from this course is probably learning or enhancing you skills within Excel or Tableau. Giving you the ability to clean and understand data, that gives you something to stand out at a future work place.Also gives you a better understanding for uses these programs in your day to day life as well. I had a pretty solid understanding of this stuff before entering this class but this class has definitely increased my understand and made me more comfortable.

  • If I were talking to a future MIS0855 scholar, one of the things I would tell him is to pay attention to the minor details. There were several times that not doing this hurt my grade in a big way throughout the semester. On the first assignment, I misread what was expected of me in terms of the sources and it is the reason I didn’t get an A. Then on a test, I made one small error on a write-in answer and it ended up costing me an A, instead of a B on the test. So I would just say that they should make sure to be detailed and pay attention to all the tics and tacs of the class.

  • The most important takeaway for me is learning about how to use Tableau and Excel. I think these two data analyzing tools are really helpful to my future study. From the course, I learned that how to appropriately present and express data in a convince way.

I also benefited from learning Tableau and Picktochart and I actually started using them in my other classes this semester, and I will definitely use them in the future. I’ve also enjoyed the assignments and how challenging they are sometimes and the incredible feeling of achievement after finishing each assignment.

  • Data is everywhere. There are plenty of ways one can display. Using tools such as Tableau, picktocharts, and infographics are just one of tons of different ways to visualize and analyze the data you collect. In addition to that, the downfall is not all data collection is accurate and is bound to be biased. The key is to take many samples and to the creators need to communicate with users on ways to use the dataset. Or do a test with the public, before making it public.

  • I found this class to be engaging and the use of Excel and Tableau to be very practical. I feel as though this was a smart class to take to build a foundation of using and understanding statistical analysis in a simplified way.

  • Well, I would say that if MIS is not your major to not take it. Specifically, if you’re an arts major. Mainly because, it’s complex and seems to be tailored for MIS majors. On the flip side, you do learn how to work with data and that can be beneficial to some non-business majors. For example, producers or marketing majors.

  • The most important take away from this course is working with datasets on tableau. I learned how to clean dirty data and how tableau worked. I also learned how to make graphs and analyze data using the graphs. For future MIS students I would like to tell them that it is a great class to take to learn more about analyzing data.

  • Te most important takeaway from this course that i learned is going with the flow. Sometimes I struggled with specific assignments and got frustrated, but all i had to do is look at the instructions and try again. If there was a kid about to take this course i would tell them to relax. The class is not that hard when you ask for help.

  • The most important thing I learned from this class was working with data. I Learned to maximize my skill with excel file and Tableau.

As we become an even more data focused world, it is essential to have these skills. By understanding data within Tableau and Excel, we can also assist our future companies in understanding more about various parts of the business and market.

  • I knew enough about data science coming into the class, but this class taught me about Tableau and it taught me sometimes I can use much simpler tools to come to the same conclusion. Also, I did not know how much you can accomplish with Excel alone. Now, if my project is small and does not require fully custom design, I use excel or Tableau to save some time. The class was helpful and it was a nice environment.

  • The most important takeaway is that data is in all parts of our lives and being able to manage data in an efficient way is important. Using Excel and Tableau as tools to visualize patterns in data provides communication of ideas in a clean and coherent way.
