The topics could include frequently asked questions, Tableau vocabulary, visual principles, Tableau features, chart types, visual history, and many other topics and angles.

It should be possible to choose degree of difficulty, topic, product, feature, random, and so forth, so it is fun for all.

Links are to quick start guides, knowledge base articles, and videos for each question in a more info button, which perhaps opens automatically when one's answer is incorrect.

It would be awesome if it also included spaced repetition as seen in applications as Anki. This feature is of course only available when one is logged on, because our answers must be saved, and should also be optional and deletable for privacy reasons.
