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.

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.
