DSD: Creating infographics using free web-based tools
Course Description:

Infographics are graphic representations of information, data or knowledge, designed to present information quickly and clearly. The high visual content is eye catching and faster to process than text based content. Many free online tools are available which enable you to easily and quickly create your own impressive infographics without the need for design expertise. Most tools provide a wide range of templates and graphic elements to select from. Examples of popular tools include: Canva, Easel.ly, Piktochart, Venngage and Visme.
