Power BI is quickly gaining popularity among professionals in data science as a cloud-based service that helps them easily visualize and share insights from their organizations’ data.

In this data science course, you will learn from the Power BI product team at Microsoft with a series of short, lecture-based videos, complete with demos, quizzes, and hands-on labs. You’ll walk through Power BI, end to end, starting from how to connect to and import your data, author reports using Power BI Desktop, and publish those reports to the Power BI service. Plus, learn to create dashboards and share with business users—on the web and on mobile devices.

I've taken a lot of online training via formal class, webinar, and articles. This edX class on Power BI was hands down the most effective and powerful training I've ever had. Not only is Power BI an amazing product, but the level of detail and the structure of this course makes it easy to learn and build upon knowledge. I couldn't recommend this course more!

Excellent course for those who want to enter into not just Power BI but global BI world as well. Enthusiastic instructor leads you through interesting topics and examples, clearly shows step by step and you can learn a lot just listening to it. Power BI is surely excellent tool whoever is interesting in cool way to represent data and with no much technical knowledge to be able to create cool things. I enjoyed through the way.

Excellent course! handled all the content I wished to see about powerBI in a clear, no nonsense approach. Great video length (just enough detail without being too time consuming) and excellent labs to work alongside the presentation video's. Demodata was of very good quality and easy yet challenging enough to use. Great work guys.

I have just started learning Power BI, indeed this course is excellent starting point for learning Power BI. The labs content is very well structured and gives you complete view on breadth of functionality available in the tool. Explanation in the presentation is also excellent covered thoroughly through the examples.

It has been a great learning experience for me. Learned a lot of things regarding BI\Power BI. The course material was understandably good for beginners and sufficient for expert level developers. The exercises were quite good. the best part was; You cannot answer the question until you attempt the question by yourself :)

Using ACCESS data causes real problems as you always crash against the 32/64 bit process problems. Using EXCEL workbooks or a database backup is much simpler

I went into the course with the idea of learning something new. In the short time after i completed the course, i have gotten a side job analyzing and visualizing data for a friend's PhD work. I will recommend the course to anyone who wants to learn a new and potentially important skill.

You can't use PowerBI online, and the powerBI desktop application only runs on Windoze, so a Windows PC should be stated as a course prerequisite. #timewasted Also its just a set of product training informational videos, with questions about that information presented, instead of hands-on exercises as actually needed to learn to use a new tool.

This is an excellent course presented by an engaging instructor with well-chosen examples and lab assignments. Even by edX standards, this course stands out. PowerBI is a powerful and complex product that combines functions of Microsoft Analysis and Reporting services, Excel "Power" add-ins and graphics capabilities, and a dashboard creation tool that has no equal. This course gives an in-depth overview on how to use these powerful features. The course is accessible to those who use Excel for data analysis and presentation but also for those (like myself) who have used the Microsoft BI services stack and wish to be more productive. In other words, an excellent course that does justice to this powerful product. The edX platform worked well, serving up clear videos, practice questions and labs.

This forced me to try to find another browser and start all over again. Do you guys ever test or is that too old-fashioned.

Excellent course. I am a beginner with fair knowledge of Excel. This course knowledge would provide more opportunities for me in analyzing my organization data. Would like to request the course organizers if the students can have access to sample online databases in different fields (other than sales and revenue), say healthcare and financials, etc. where the students relevant to the field can access and practice.

Great course for those wanting introduction to Power BI. A few bugs within Labs prevented me from making decision to buy the certificate. Also, course level takes a 'wrong turn' concerning Developer API and Custom Visuals - technical content should be reserved for different course/class.

Excellent course as an introduction into Power BI visulisation reporting. Power BI brings together the Power suite of MS BI tools Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View all used from the Power BI desktop (or Power BI service) to help you ETL, model and report on your data. The Power BI reporting environment as an excel brand feel to it and gives you an easy to learn platform for generating professional reports. These reports consist of many views(tiles) which you then can pick and choose which tiles to put into your dashboards. With the investment MS are putting into Power BI with itsregular (weekly) updates means Power BI will become a major player in the BI reporting arena. Though with the regular updates it could mean that this course becomes quickly outdated. So do take that into consideration when starting this course.

Keep your skills upto dat and learn how to use Power BI now.

Overall it's a great course .. real life examples, so clear explanation, the accent of the instructor is very clear for those who aren't native English speakers like me. But this course is aiming beginners (you should have prior experience with Excel to find the course easy) and you won't be a BI expert after completing it .. but I think it's a great introduction which will give you a good base to continue seeking knowledge in this topic later on. I encourage you to join this course & enjoy it to the maximum :)

Overall I felt this was an excellent course. Its my first course taken on eDX and i was very impressed with the experience. The course was a great overview of Power BI. It discussed many capabilities at a good level for those just getting into it. The examples, labs, and questions were well thought out and relevant. Additionally the discussion forum was very beneficial and the participation was great. I felt the balance of videos and labs was good and the quality of the videos, presentations, and presenter was excellent. Power BI appears to finally be taking Microsoft's visualization tools to the next level where they can compete against the likes of Tableau, Qlik, etc. This is a great starter class to get you familiar with what all it can do now.
