  • I don't have money to invest in something I'm not sure will help me.

    I totally understand. Your money is valuable. Use it wisely. Although you won't get a deep dive into all of the bells and whistles of Looker Studio, you'll have enough to get started. Oh, and this course is completely FREE.

  • I can't find anything about Looker Studio for educators.

    I felt the same way when I started looking. I had to figure a lot of this out and spend many hours doing so. As an educator for 25 years, I have a pretty good understanding of what you would like. I've designed this course, and my other courses, with schools and teachers in mind.

  • I don't have time to learn something new.

    You'll have lifetime access, so you can chip away at the course. If you want to get through it, set aside about one hour and you'll have the course completed.

  • Do I have to download anything?

    Looker Studio is a web-based platform you access through your browser. The tool itself is free. You just need to connect your data to it. Having access to a Gmail account or a Google Workspace account from your school will give you the best results.

  • Learning new software is frustrating.

    I've designed the course to be simple and clear. I have also included the dataset I used to complete this course. You can download and use it yourself. I have also created a downloadable PDF of the tools and layout of Looker Studio. Print it out and have along side while you complete the course!

  • This is great, but I want to know more.

    You can check out the other self-paced courses I have designed. You can also get free information and practical tips on my website at
