Studies Confirm the Power of Visuals in eLearning

Studies Confirm the Power of Visuals in eLearning | EdTech Stories | Scoop.it

We are now in the age of visual information where visual content plays a role in every part of life. As 65 percent of the population is visual learners, images are clearly key to engaging people in eLearning courses. 

 

Moving and still images have been included in learning materials for decades, but only now has faster broadband, cellular networks, and high-resolution screens made it possible for high-quality images to be a part of eLearning visual design. Graphic interfaces made up of photos, illustrations, charts, maps, diagrams, and videos are gradually replacing text-based courses.

 

In this post, we will dig deep into some statistics and facts to further convince of why eLearning developers should embrace visuals when creating their courses.

Not just in e-learning, but as part of any learning. I have seen excellent  use of visuals as back grounds to talks as part of an e-learning course, so definitely something to remember...

Being a community manager is a lot of work!

This feature article on Erik Martin is very interesting and thorough. 

"The best community managers are the ones who commit to reading and listening in all day long to see what users care about, not just checking in when there is a problem. "

Important points in this article: It's about people and don't be a slave to data.
