Jigsaw Academy, the premier online analytics training academy has launched a new beginner’s course rightly titled ‘Analytics for Beginners’. The 6-10 hour course is for anyone and everyone that wants to know more about the data phenomenon sweeping the world.
Using simple language, fun examples and entertaining videos, Jigsaw Academy’s new course aims to introduce absolute beginners, or novices to the fundamentals of analytics.
“We use examples from daily life, real-life stories, interviews with analytics experts and journalistic articles, so as to appeal to everyone, even those who really have no prior analytics knowledge,” says Gaurav Vohra, CEO of Jigsaw Academy.
