Dear all,
The Information Visualization MOOC is now open for registration at <>. The first class "event" 
is on Jan 22, 2013. See for more 

As part of the course work, students will work with real-world clients 
and we are looking for well-defined projects that can be completed 
within seven weeks by teams of 4-5 students that have programming, 
design, data mining, and visualization skills. As a client, you would 
provide a detailed project description, share data, and state the 
conditions under which students can publish results, and/or add project 
results on their resume. You would also answer 5-10 questions that 
students might have about the project, and you would rate—on a scale of 
1 (low) to 5 (highest quality)—up to 10 visualizations of your data.  
You are of course welcome to interact in a more substantial way with any 
of the student teams that selected your project.

If you are interested in exploring this unique opportunity, please 
complete the form at by *January 15, 2013.*
Let us know if you have questions but keep subject header.

Thank you for considering and best regards,
Scott Weingart and Katy Börner
