Infographics represent information visually, in which the combination of images, diagrams, and text summarise or figuratively explains 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:

You will find notes, videos and exercises to learn and start mastering infographics in the course.

Competencias a desenvolver

  1. Knowing and using tools for the creation of graphics and digital images.
  2. Handling the Inkscape outline.
  3. Locate and obtain images ethically and legally to complement graphic compositions.
  4. Create or modify visual compositions and adapt them to our projects.
  5. Be aware of the basic concepts of colour, composition, and scene for creating complex infographics.

Each topic consists of a theoretical part detailing the procedures for working with the different Inkscape options. At the end of each case, 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 through the Teams or Zoom platform, in which doubts and other aspects and dynamics will be raised and solved.
