Infographics are a way of representing information visually, in which the combination of images, diagrams, and text summarise or figuratively explain ideas and concepts.
During the course, we will use Inkscape, an open-source multiplatform application released under the GNU GPL license. This application is freely available for download at the following URL: https://inkscape.org/release/inkscape-1.1.2/.
In the course, you will find notes, videos and exercises to learn and start mastering infographics.
Competencias a desenvolver
- Knowing and using tools for the creation of graphics and digital images.
- Handling the Inkscape outline.
- Locate and obtain images ethically and legally to complement graphic compositions.
- Create or modify visual compositions and adapt them to our projects.
- To be aware of the basic concepts of colour, composition, and scene for creating infographics and complex compositions.
- Improve the quality of any digital work.
Each topic consists of a theoretical part detailing the procedures for working with the different Inkscape options. At the end of each topic, there is a self-assessment test.
The platform measures the connection time of each participant, a criterion that will be taken into account:
- Participation (10 hours of connection at least).
- Continuous assessment using: tests, consultation in forums, etc.
- Possibility of a final test.
There will be four voluntary videoconferences of approximately 1 hour's duration, through the Zoom platform, in which doubts will be raised and solved and other aspects and dynamics.
