(Update, January 6: We've reached the 5,000 students limit, the course is full, although I may offer it again the next months.)

Registration for the second edition of the Introduction to Infographics and Data Visualization massive online course is open. The 6-week workshop begins in January. You can enroll for free through the KC's Massive Online Courses website. has finished, after 5,000 people signed up.

To get a sense of the contents of the course and of its dynamic, read the story just published by the Knight Center. No previous experience in design, infographics, or visualization is required.

Some participants are currently blogging about their experiences in the first edition, which will end in mid-December. They have also described discussions and assignments.
