Though infographics are great, they are time consuming to create.  But fear not!  There are free websites that can help you easily create infographics by providing you tools and templates.

One of these websites is easel.ly.  Easel.ly helps you create and share visual information by giving you pre-made, easy to use templates or allowing you to start from scratch.  Here is what the “start fresh” template and design looks like:

There are also blogs dedicated to infographics, online articles about infographic design, and lists of “best infographics.”

If you or students are making infographics in class, we would love to see the results!  Please also remember to check out the HPU Libraries Media Services Free Media Software guide for links out to more free online tools to help you with multimedia assignments and projects.
