Infographics help make explaining or providing information more exciting. Check out some cool examples here. Here is an interactive infographic on why you should use infographics.

Easelly is an easy to use tool for designing infographics. In class we'll check out the video below and look at some of Easelly's features. 

















Thinglink is a tool used to make images more interactive. Again, providing information in an interactive image may be more appealing for our site's audience. In class we'll check out the Thinglink overview video below.
