About this workshop

Welcome to Free Fridays!

Our Free Friday Livestreams are here to give you a bite-sized sample of what you’ll learn in our Workshops, Part Time and Immersive courses.

Are you interested in making data-driven decisions to improve your business, but aren’t sure where to begin? This Data Analytics 101 Livestream is perfect for you!

In this free, two-hour livestream tutorial, you’ll learn to understand, analyze, and interpret data — so you too can join the conversation around data analysis. We’ll cover how to ask the right questions about your data and basic analytic functionality in Google Sheets. Then you’ll apply your newfound analytical skills to a real-world dataset, allowing you to develop recommendations based on your findings. All in real time, taught by an industry professional.

Join us for Data Analytics 101 to learn the basics of the data analytics field and gain the skills you need to confidently collect, organize, and analyze real-world business analytics data.

As an added bonus, a member of our Admissions Team will be joining this livestream to talk to you about the enrollment process for our Part-Time and Immersive courses, and answer your questions regarding course pacing, payment options, career development, and more!

What will the livestream learning experience be like? - Ask questions and build your online network by interacting with fellow classmates and an expert instructor — all in real time via live chatbox and Q&A. - Complete optional classwork to give you a hands-on taste of the subject. - Learn new skills in the comfort of your own home, or on the go! All participants will be automatically muted with no video.
