We’ve all heard the phrase, a picture is worth a thousand words. Graphics are great training tools and can make the difference between an average course and a great course.
The true test of an graphic: Can the learner look at the image and understand the concept of the training page without reading the text? If your answer is “NO”, then you have yourself a gratuitous image. Yuck!
Graphics come in many different shapes, sizes, layouts, colors, and complexities. They are more than just a simple picture of a person or an office. Graphics can portray steps in a process, pieces of a concept, interaction between people, emotions, and much more.
Just because there is some open space on a page, don’t get lazy and place some meaningless gratuitous image. We always recommend finding a way to create an image that engages the learner. Have fun with it and be creative!
