While telling stories with data has been part of the news practice since its earliest days, it is in the midst of a renaissance. Graphics desks which used to be deemed as “the art department,” a subfield outside the work of newsrooms, are becoming a core part of newsrooms’ operation. Those people (they often have various titles: data journalists, news artists, graphic reporters, developers, etc.) who design news graphics are expected to be full-fledged journalists and work closely with reporters and editors. The purpose of this class is to learn how to think about the visual presentation of data, how and why it works, and how to doit the right way. We will learn how to make graphs like The New York Times, Vox, Pew, and FiveThirtyEight. In the end, you can share–embed your beautiful charts in publications, blog posts, and websites.

來自VISUALIZATION FOR DATA JOURNALISM的熱門評論
Lectures by professor Ng are excellent. But I found that the final project relies too heavily on Python coding, which wasn't as covered (there are ungraded exercises in the previous lessons).
Dr. Ng is clear and concise in her explanations and did a great job creating an entry-level overview course on data visualization which she obviously has a great wealth of knowledge.
Well organised and with a lot of commitment from the faculty. I would like to see deeper discussions on most of the topic in the future. Thank you
Thanks very much for great content and the instructor did a great job, and her materials were very use helpful and relevant! Great experience!
