In this video, Mike Ploger will dive into five helpful data storytelling tips that show you how to create better and more persuasive data visualizations. You’ll also find out how our brains process visuals and how you can use these principles to improve your charts and graphs.

A few of these data storytelling tips include:

– Our eyes don’t follow a specific order, so you need to create that order.
– Our eyes first focus on what stands out, so be intentional with your focal point.
– Our eyes can only handle a few things at once, so don’t overcrowd your design.

And a few more. Watch the video to find out even more about data storytelling! Then get started putting your story into your own designs. Create an infographic or a presentation that shows off everything you learned in this video: https://dashboard.visme.co/login

    When doing financial analysis, to focus on one measure or data point would be very misleading, it is critical to introduce context to the measure–which is not addressed in this video.

    This is great! I'd love to use this for my students! I am a community college instructor. Fall we will only be teaching online!

    All videos we use must be properly captioned – capitalization, punctuation… No auto-generated captioned videos are allowed.

    Would you be willing to edit your auto-generated captions to perfect them so I could use this video?

    I looked up how to do this:

    Sign in to YouTube Studio.

    From the left menu, select Subtitles.

    Click the video you’d like to edit.

    For the language you’d like to edit, in the “Subtitles” column, select Options and then Edit.

    At the top right, click Edit.

    Click on the caption track you want to edit.

    Click inside any line in the caption track panel and edit the text.

    When you’ve finished making changes, click Publish edits, at the top right.

    You’ll be asked to confirm that you want to overwrite existing subtitles. Click Publish.

    Mike: [1] Our eyes don't follow a specific order.

    Me: Indeed. Like, I need to read the texts and images on the screen but my eyes won't stop following you. I'm sorry.
