Pre-Requisites

Computer Labs Needed/Technical Specs

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Microsoft Excel 2010 or later (2013 or later recommended)
  • Internet access
  • Related data and lab files that Accelebrate would provide
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor's screen simultaneously with working on their own.
