Can I do this offline?
Dataquest was designed to be experienced with an internet connection, first and foremost. All our content and interactive exercises require a connection to function the way we intended them to.
With that said, we do have features for students to take advantage of while they're offline. These are meant to be a complimentary experience to the main web app — our hope is that we're able to provide a consistent, holistic learning experience, both online and offline, in order to ensure you're getting the most out of your time here. Here are a few that we're working on:
Mission takeaways are downloadable summaries that are unlocked at the end of each mission. Students can use these to review and retain core concepts that they've just learned, or as cheat sheets for future courses and projects later on in their learning path.
To see an example of what these look like, feel free to download a preview file here.
Downloadable Data Sets
Each of our missions and projects uses real-world data sets from real-world sources in order to ensure our students are working on relevant learning material. While you'll need to be online to take advantage of our interactive coding editor, we encourage students to tackle exercises locally as well — to do this, we give Basic and premium members the ability to download the data sets that we use in our missions.
After downloading these data sets, students are free to either follow along or experiment on their own, with or without an internet connection.
