About the blog

This blog is designed for students taking the “Data Journalism” class at the Jack J. Valenti School of Communication.

This senior-level hands-on course will introduce students to all phases of data journalism, including: finding and evaluating data sources, analyzing and organizing data, reporting with numbers, and visualizing data. Moreover, students will learn skills in spreadsheet and database operation, data analysis software and data visualization.

I will use this blog to post lecture notes,exercises and assignments. In addition, this blog will provide valuable online resources that will help students master Data Visualization skills beyond the course work.
