Books on visual literacy - a map from

Using illustrations to convey concepts can save time and can support students who have a visual orientation. Drawing a visual representation of a set of ideas or a process forces you to think in a different way compared with linear text. A project run by several Universities in Europe has resulted in the Web site. I’ve linked to the wonderful Periodic Table of Visualization Methods before, now more content has been added, including a couple of demonstration courses on Visual Literacy.

The demonstration courses are available with guest access in a local Moodle installation (another example of a project being run on the Moodle platform when the partners use different platforms for normal business). One course is aimed at business people and the other at engineers.
