Infographic – Assignment And Submission
The purpose of the infographic assignment is to compile your feasibility report’s process, research, and data to enable a broader audience to understand and retain the information.
Students will compile the feasibility report findings into an infographic. Infographics convey information in a succinct way to increase understanding and retention. Students will determine the most important findings and carefully select an effective design format. Instead of assuming a role, the audience is your classmates. Unlike the board of director or senior management audience for the report, this audience is less familiar with the product, service, strategy, initiative, program, process, or change.
Using computer-assisted technology (I would recommend the free infographic site on the web – Infogr.am – though an infographic could be made in PowerPoint), prepare one infographic. This infographic should not merely “dump” all that you have learned about your leader into a graphic form, but instead should present high-level conclusions and recommendations based on your research.
Before you create the infographic:
Perform a web search for infographic images to understand how data has been amassed to reveal high-level conclusions.
Review the following articles:

- 10 Steps To Designing An Amazing Infographic Josh Smith
- Log into Infogr.am and get a feel for the ways this program presents the data.
- Review the feasibility report for the most critical information that led to your recommendation.
Select the best template and then the best format within the template.
- Prepare your data in the infographic format.
- The free site Infogr.am requires you to log in and create an account.
In the account creation process, you are required to provide a user name and an email address.
- You will be the only one with access to the account.
At the end of the infographic creation process, regardless of the platform you choose, you will download the finished product image file, and upload the graphic to the designated assignment area for grading.
Your professor can only grade assignments uploaded to Moodle. Submit the Infogr.am URL in the assignment “comments” section. (There is a very brief tutorial in Week Five titled “How to Submit the Infographic”)
