* Canva - a free tool

* Pixlr - a free tool

* PicMonkey - a free tool, but you may pay for additional tools

* Quozio - free tool

* Share As Image - a free tool, but will show a watermark; pay for no watermark

Visuals are a key part of learning. These seven tools provide a range of options that you may want to use when designing materials for your classes (or perhaps students would find use for them in your class).

Why this "Data Visualization & Storytelling" Topic?

Why this "Data Visualization & Storytelling" Topic? | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it

A straightforward answer would be the famous quote: "A picture worth thousands of words".


Here, my aim is to gather and offer the best articles from across the web that I can find on using Data Visualization and Storytelling in business.


I have bunch data visualization and storytelling together since Data visualization is, to me, a great means to perform Storytelling.

Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.

Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...


How To Find A Topic: Use the popular Tags panel above or Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the scoops and articles with that keyword will appear.


Note: I may occasionally review an article that I find out the either my insights were not giving accurately enough my stand-point.


I hope you find many great insights and interesting scoop here.

Slideshare The Visual Marketing SEO RPG - NEW @Scoopit BLOW IT UP Study

Slideshare The Visual Marketing SEO RPG - NEW @Scoopit BLOW IT UP Study | All about Visualization & Storytelling | Scoop.it
Scoop.it StudyI've often thought Slideshare was the great underutilized weapon of content marketing. Thinking that and having the data to prove are two different things. Thanks to the team at Scoop.it we now have the data to prove what I've FELT. In an extensive study the Scoop.it team shifted my thinking on Slideshare. Always knew Slideshare was POWERFUL SEO VooDoo because I've had several decks BLOW UP such as:http://www.slideshare.net/martinmartysmith/storytelling-new-seo Absolute #1 position on "Storytelling is the new SEO" and has been top ranked for over a year. http://www.slideshare.net/martinsellingzoe/content-marketing-network This deck held on for a year and has slide out of ranking now. You don't get much more SEO competitive than "Storytelling is the New SEO" and "Content Marketing Network so personal validation supports the Scoop.it team's great work here. The other paradigm they shifted for me today was thinking of Slideshare as an important "visual marketing" tool. Decks are LEAN, FAST and VIRAL so great ways to share and build authority and traffic. Just wish I could get my Slideshare profile styled better. Anyone know the secret sauce for that? Great work Scoopiteers!

The Age of Data Visualization

Data visualization is a communication tool effective  at communicating information based on data in a clear, concise, compelling manner. 

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Good article even though it is a bit too "BI oriented" to me. Of course, Business Intelligence tools (BI) are a great source of data for  data visualization, but you can find those data anywhere. To have great data visualization charts, you also can use a very small amount of data.


What is important to me in Data visualization is 3 things:

  1. The message you want to give.
  2. The quality of the illustration.
  3. The data and their reliability.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

The brain is quite unlike a computer,” Allen told The Economistmagazine last year. “Instead of memory and a few calculating elements, evolution designed every little bit of it to be hideously complex. And then when you start studying every little bit of it, you find there’s even additional complexity. Understanding how the brain works is a fiendishly challenging problem.”
