In the past six years I've done numerous Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). The latest one was this Summer, in partnership again with the Knight Center at the University of Texas. My MOOCs are quick and broad introductions to data visualization and infographics. They won't make you a professional visualization designer —that requires years of self-teaching, or applying to programs like our MFA in Interactive Media at the University of Miami— but they offer some foundations.
We've decided to create a public repository of all video tutorials and readings from the course. Enjoy and feel free to use them in any way you want (just give us credit!)
Coincidentally, and talking about our interactive media and journalism programs at the University of Miami, I've been compiling a list of the courses that we offer. Here are a few (I'm not even including classes from our MS in Business Analytics, as I still need to learn which ones are focused on visualization.)
