Infographic Creation Tools

1. Piktochart

Piktochart is by far the best infographic creation tool we’ve found. While the free account is limited, it is still highly functional, and gives you an idea of how easy it is to use before ponying up for the paid account if you so choose.

Information Graphics Tools (Educational Technology & Mobile Learning)

Information graphics which are the visual representation of data known as infogographics are making rounds online these days. It seems like web users are favouring this form of content format over other forms. Their  visually attractive display, the bright and shiny colours they  include are what make out of them an appealing means of communication. I personally like them because I find them factually interesting, to the point, and easy on eyes. I have devoted a whole section in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning  to the educational infographics I find online. Anyway today I am sharing with you tools that you can use to make your own infographics. Check out the list below.
