Phew… This one was a doozy! What a learning experience!
Creating this infographic was a very important learning experience for me as a training professional. In all honesty, I didn’t know what an infographic was before this assignment. I was completely unfamiliar with the C.A.R.P. principles before starting this project, and I feel that those principles will me enhance the design of the eLearning courses I create for staff in my company. This entire process also taught me the importance of being able to justify my decisions regarding “why” I did what I did. Having to rationalize why I laid the document out the way I did, why I chose the color scheme I did, why I chose the topic and how I presented it, etc, were all huge takeaways because I’ve never considered “why” I did what I did when creating a lesson. At the end of this project, I feel as if I will be able to apply all of the design principles learned from creating an infographic to what I do on a daily basis creating eLearning courses.
