Do you have experience using dashboards for either work or personal use?
Student responses to discussion questions must be substantive, that is, thoughtful and analytical. Be organized in your thoughts and ideas. Incorporate correlations with the assigned readings or topics. Stay on topic. Avoid summarizing. Contribute to the learning environment with depth and with the goal of motivating discussion. Scientific discourse is based on evidence. Opinions are just that, but if used in a discussion, they must be informed opinions.
Additionally, do not make insulting or inflammatory statements in the discussion board. Be respectful of others’ ideas. Philosophical differences exist and we can all agree to disagree in a professional manner. Be patient and read the postings of others thoroughly before posting your responses. Since learning takes place over time, the responses should not be made all at once, but spread out, in order to allow dialogue to develop. The aim is to encourage interaction among students and faculty, not simply to present information.
What is a data dashboard?
This week’s reading provides an introduction to data dashboards – what they are, how they work, how they are used in business intelligence and analytics, and the organizational benefits of using them.
Do you have experience using dashboards for either work or personal use? If so, share your experience. What types of KPI’s and metrics do the dashboards you use track? How has the use of the dashboard impacted you and/or your organization’s performance?
If you do not have extensive experience using dashboards, then what part(s) of the reading did you find most helpful in clarifying your understanding of dashboards and their uses? If you have additional questions, ask them here so that the class can respond.
