Visuals in Learning Design

Learning designers constantly use visuals to convey meaning and to shape learner experiences. Yet, designers often have little training or guidance on what makes for effective visual experiences and also regularly lack the technical and artistic skills necessary to create and modify their own designs. This book was written to accompany a graduate-level course in learning design that helps new designers to understand why visuals are important, how to make effective visuals, and how to use industry-standard tools (like Adobe Illustrator) to bring their visual designs to life.
