How do you create effective visuals? This post provides 5 Cs to help guide you. Make sure the visual is:

* Clear

* Concise

* Connected

* Compelling

* Complete

Why is this important? People remember visuals, more so than words. As you create a visual make sure that it is easy to understand, that it shares critical information, that it engages the learners.

For each of the 5 C's consider the questions below (quoted from the post).

* Will a visual help make a point clearer?

* Will a visual summarize a point better than text?

* Will a visual help learners make connections?

* Will visuals make content more attractive?

* Will a visual help complete an idea?

Each of these questions are explored...and of course, each has a visual to help us understand the reason. Although the post is addressing eLearning, the same concepts apply in a face2face classroom.

A Quick, No-Nonsense Guide to Basic Instructional Design Theory | Theory | Scoop.it

"Of the many eLearning theories that influence the practice, three of them are used by professionals on a daily basis...Practice and theory actually goes hand in hand. This is true not only in instructional design but in any other field or discipline. Theory, far from crippling your practice, will actually help you improve the quality of your eLearning material. While a learning theory won't answer all of your design problems, it offers clarity throughout your process and directs you toward finding solutions."

Learn more about three learning theories of instructional design in this post:

* Constructivism

* Cognitivism

* Behaviorism

Why? Each theory looks at "HOW" students learn. Understanding the theories helps you design activities that will help learners move forward in their learning process.

The infographic provides a definition for each of the theories and then provides ideas on what each theory helps the learner practice.

As with most infographics from SHIFT's eLearning Blog, this post also provides additional information on each of the three theories as well as links to additional resources.

Explore this post to better understand why these theories are important to all teachers, in online learning, blended learning and face2face situation.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Theory | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
