Visual Elements and Fonts

  • Adrian Wallwork


• You will learn how to

keep all visual elements (e.g., photographs, pictures, cartoons, diagrams, graphs, charts, tables) as simple as possible

• use fonts and colors that will be clear on any projector/screen

• avoid constantly looking behind you at the screen to remember what your slide is showing

Why is this important?

Research has shown that of all the information the mind stores, 75% is received visually, 13% through hearing, and 12% through smell, taste, and touch. Visual aids improve learning by 200%, retention by 38%, and understanding complex subjects by 25% to 40%. Visual aids in color get an 85% higher attention span.
