Most of you must have heard the saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”. In the context of eLearning, pictures can really create wonders. Using images in an eLearning course is an effective way to teach the learner. A still image can help the learner retain information for a long time.

Whenever I design an eLearning course, I ensure that the course is user-friendly and the learners can make the most out of it. For this purpose, I make extensive use of visuals and graphics.

As a result, they play a key role in improvingthe performance of employees.
It is said that a good eLearning course must have the right mixture of an instructional strategy and a learning event. But, what is it that goes into the creation a learning event?

You can use various kinds of visuals such as charts, images, graphs, videos, drawings, illustrations, photographs, graphics, etc. Now, I will brief you on how visualization will have a great impact on learning.

They help him retain the information for a long period of time. Thus, feedback plays a vital role in eLearning.
