Gust MEES's curator insight, July 13, 2014 2:48 AM

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.

L.R. Knost Quotes (Author of Two Thousand Kisses a Day)

L.R. Knost Quotes (Author of Two Thousand Kisses a Day) | Teacher Training | Scoop.it
48 quotes from L.R. Knost: 'It's not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It's our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.', 'Life is amazing. And then it's awful. And then it's amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it's ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That's just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it's breathtakingly beautiful.', and 'Some say they get lost in books, but I find myself, again and again, in the pages of a good book. Humanly speaking, there is no greater teacher, no greater therapist, no greater healer of the soul, than a well-stocked library.'
DTLLS tutor's insight:
Love the little poem about books, the quote starting with "Life is amazing. And then it is awful" and the one from Maya Angelou: "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better"

This is really great! It really works. You can download the font for free for private use, but I think getting as many people as possible to pay for it would be even better. Maybe we can convince Microsoft to include it in Office. Wouldn't that be great?
