Course Overview
Hi, my name is Janani Ravi, and welcome to this course on Creating Data Stories with Qlik Sense. A little about myself. I have a Master's Degree in electrical engineering from Stanford and have worked at companies, such as Microsoft, Google, and Flipkart. At Google, I was one of the first engineers working on real-time collaborative editing in Google Docs, and I hold four patents for its underlying technologies. I currently work on my own startup, Loonycorn, a studio for high-quality video content. Individual dashboards and charts can help discover important insights, however they do not stitch disparate elements together in the form of a narrative to present to an audience. This is where the data storytelling feature in Qlik Sense rides to the rescue. Data stories let you combine reporting, presentation, and exploratory analysis techniques to create and collaborate with your team. In this course, you will use snapshots, images, effects, and other storytelling elements to pull together compelling stories and help data- driven decisions in your organization. We start with an introduction to the storytelling view in the Qlik Sense Desktop app. We'll study the story slides, the story timeline, and introduce the concept of snapshots and snapshot annotations. We'll then move onto understanding and using the Qlik Sense storytelling elements to build up a story. We'll put together stories with snapshots and live data that allow us to drill down into real-time details in our visuals. We'll add emphasis and highlights to important elements using shapes, text annotations, and effects. Finally, once a story has been created, we'll learn how we can share stories by publishing them to Qlik Sense Cloud. We'll also export these stories as PowerPoint or PDF files. By the end of this course, you will be comfortable using the various Qlik Sense storytelling elements to build a compelling narrative.
