Introduction to Systems and Network Mapping with Kumu
In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will create an interactive multi-elements relationship map, as well as design visualizations for a real-world social network, based on metrics analyses.
Besides helping you to make sense of complex data, relationship maps like the ones we will build here are a great medium to visually present Causal Loop and Stock and Flow diagrams, as well as non-linear dynamics within an ecosystem.
This project will also introduce you to some of the basic concepts behind network theory, which will inform the analyses and interpretations of the maps you will create.
The art and craft of creating and communicating relationship maps is applicable to a wide range of areas, from design and software engineering, to organization consultancy and community building. And this project is an accessible opportunity for anyone to get some hands-on practice and knowledge on this subject. So let's map!
Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
