Sobre o curso

In this project-centered course*, you will create a content-rich infographic on a topic of your choice using Adobe Illustrator (which you can download for a free, 30-day trial). You might choose to create a visual representation of data from the world of sports, entertainment, politics, or science, to explain a business trend or environmental issue, or even to present a theme or development from your personal life. Your finished infographic will engage your target audience and convey information clearly through effective use of design elements such as typography, color, and structure. Whether you’re a graphic designer, a writer or the intern in the department, you’ll learn: • what an infographic is and what makes a good one • how to work within your limits • how to work with a team (if you have one) • why infographics are effective • techniques for spotting data in stories • six valuable steps for planning an effective infographic • how to use and make some of the building blocks of infographics: maps, charts and flow charts • ways data can be visualized to clarify it and give it meaning • how to effectively design a good infographic by effectively using elements like type, color and an underlying grid structure • some free or cheap, online tools for making various kinds of infographics As you work on your project, you’ll learn more about why infographics are effective, what makes a good infographic, and how to plan and design an infographic for maximum impact. You’ll explore various approaches to data visualization, and you’ll practice creating visualizations like maps, charts, flow charts, and simple drawings in your free version of Adobe Illustrator. Please note that if you are new to learning graphics software, making these graphics could take much longer than estimated as you learn and grow. What you’ll need to get started: This project-based course is aimed at anyone interested in understanding, designing, and using infographics - from students and hobbyists to professional graphic designers. We’ll use Adobe Illustrator for some components of the project. If you don’t have access to the full version of Illustrator,you can download a free version at www.Adobe.com/Illustrator. If the free 30-day trial runs out, you can "purchase" it for a month for about $20. *About Project-Centered Courses: Project centered courses are designed specifically to help you complete a personally meaningful real-world project, with your instructor and a community of like-minded learners providing guidance and suggestions along the way. By actively applying new concepts as you learn, you’ll master the course content more efficiently; you’ll also get a head start on using the skills you gain to make positive changes in your life and career. When you complete the course, you’ll have a finished project that you’ll be proud to use and share. When you enroll in certain courses, you’ll be asked to pay a small fee to share your work with others for peer review....

Really good! Karl Gude is great and knows how to explain in a clear way. Very useful course if you want to practice your Adobe Illustrator skills, and end up with projects to add on your portfolio.

I did learn a lot in this course, especially for me that I am very new on this topic. It has been challenging enough for me. Some recommendations for improvements.

1) Adjust the estimated time to complete the assignments. It took me a lot more than the estimates to complete them.

2) The grading system especially on the final assignment is too difficult. You need to be EXCELLENT to pass and this is difficult to achieve in a subjective peer review rating.

3) I did not expect to be responsible of providing grades for classmates. It is not clear if the university offering the course will provide feedback. Feedback from the experts is what I expected when I bought the certificate.

4) I had to do my final assignment on a different software as my free trial subscription for Adobe Illustrator expired.

Overall, it was a productive course for me and I did learn from it.

Karl was a witty, knowledgeable instructor! I very much enjoyed learning about his perspective on proper infographic design. Lacking any prior experience with Adobe Illustrator (which did NOT offer a free one-month trial, by the way), I found that the assignments took FAR longer than was outlined and I had to do a LOT of outside digging on my own. Finally, I find it somewhat disappointing that all evaluations are peer-based. By paying for the course, I naively thought that there would be at least some professional review and oversight. This is especially problematic when many of my peers do not speak English as a first language. On one assignment, one question was whether or not the chart used 3D elements. This is a very objective question, but my reviews were split 2/2!

I enjoyed the delivery and content of the course as Karl Gude taught us about creating pie charts, graphs, maps and how to design the infographics properly in illustrator- this wasn't easy by the way! It is a lot of good information. But I didn't give a perfect score since I had to defer my course to a second month just so it can get marked and I actually pass. I only got one mark the first month I did it for the final assignment and needed 3 more, so deferred it to this month to get the others. For people paying for this course, this can waste a lot of money waiting an extra month.
