Why Visuals are Vital [INFOGRAPHIC]

Online education has drastically evolved over time. What began as simple correspondence courses has developed into a rich, interactive learning experience which has completely reformed the world of education.

While early online courses were largely text based, today’s technology opens the door for instructors to teach via many forms of media. At first glance, such a change from traditional teaching methods of gleaning from text might seem like an unnecessary leap. However, research has proven that it is worthwhile to include visuals in curricula not only because modern students are used to viewing multimedia but also because brains process visuals faster than they process text.

    This is a relevant subject. Students know that, they will be more assiduous following a lesson with pictures and diagrams than text written on the board. But when they have to produce something (like a PowerPoint presentation for example), most of the time they forget this and just write sentences they will read then during the presentation. This is why it is important to tell how essential visual and inforgraphic are to make people aware of your presentation, because even they know it, they do not think to apply it.
