The California Institute of Technology’s mascot does more than just cheer on teams at sports games. In 2021, a clip art version of Bucky Beaver led the U.S. university’s staff through training for its Tableau server upgrade.
Tableau is a data visualization software. Caltech’s upgraded Tableau site featured a redesigned homepage and a new folder organization, so Associate Director of Prospect Analytics Kelly Douglas needed to lead a training for staff.
“I wanted to design a training that would get people’s attention and that they would engage with … it seemed like a good opportunity to be able to create something fun,” says Douglas.
