Leveraging Infographics in Documentation
Wednesday, 24 March 2021 11:00 AM to 12 Noon Eastern time (GMT-4)
Most people don't like to read, especially in an era of too much information. Once considered primarily a written domain, technical documentation is becoming more visual as it appears online. Technical communicators can adapt to this changing trend by producing more infographics and data visualizations in their documentation. Since images are processed faster than text, infographics can also help your audience to process information quickly and easily.
In this webinar, you’ll learn about the added value of infographics and how to leverage them in documentation. We'll discuss the main infographic types: workflows, data flows, and conceptual infographics, and how to plan your own infographics. We’ll also share tips how to leverage visual language cues to get your message across, create interactive infographics, and use free resources to enhance your infographics.
