Data is everywhere. Data is powerful—but only if it can be analyzed and then presented in such a way that it tells a story. While Google Forms and Sheets have some quite powerful data analysis features, Google Data Studio takes it to the next level.

This free tool allows users to visualize, connect, share, and collaborate and present their data and tell their story. Therefore, teams can make accurate, data-driven decisions. Using the drag-and-drop report editor, users can create customized and interactive reports with ease. Create beautiful, easy-to-read data visualizations that tell a story and inspire action. All of this and more is possible in Google Data Studio. Learn how Google Data Studio works with CatchOn, a powerful and expansive data analytics tool, to give you visibility into your EdTech efficacy and remote learning.
