Data Viz for Data Discovery

The purpose of collecting data is to use data. Good data visualization should be interactive, multidimensional, and visually efficient. If it meets these characteristics, it can communicate not just what happened in training but can help demonstrate the outcomes and insights of why it matters to leadership.

Data Viz for Data Discovery

  1. 1. Data Viz for Data Discovery xAPI Camp Learning Solutions 2017
  2. 2. First things first. Here’s a little context to get us started.
  3. 3. Experience data is a combination of activity, behavior, learning, and performance data.
  4. 4. Experience Data is collected from a Modular Ecosystem:
  5. 5. We’ve been visualizing data for hundreds of years.
  6. 6. The Tree of the Two Advents, 1202
  7. 7. Geometry, 1587
  8. 8. Diagrams, 1854
  9. 9. We visualize data so that we can literally see patterns.
  10. 10. So what qualities make a visualization good for data discovery?
  11. 11. 1. Interactive Let the user ask questions. ● When you’re designing the interface, consider how users will be able to ask questions. ● Build interaction tools directly into the visual display where possible; intuitive interaction allows for more fluid discovery.

  14. 14. 2. Multidimensional Help the user see relationships between different variables. ● Consider the visual space and all the visual dimensions you can use to convey information. ● Color, shape, size, spatial organization, line thickness, hover / interactive detail.

  16. 16. Yet Analytics xAPI LRS Statement Frequency
  17. 17. Yet Analytics xAPI LRS Statements Over Time
  18. 18. 3. Visually Efficient Use visualization types that match your data sets. ● A good visualization conveys information in a dramatically smaller footprint than the same data presented tabularly. ● Different graph types imply different kinds of relationships – use the ones that work with your data, not against it.

  23. 23. Help people answer questions. Give them the tools to discover patterns in their people data. Use your data.
  24. 24. Get others involved. Use these as guiding principles to design yours – or use ours. Make people care.
