Visme vs Piktochart

So lately I have been enthralled with infographics, perhaps it’s my new Pinterest obsession, thanks to my digital and social media class, and it’s less intimidating than making videos. I love that infographics also have writing and story to tell. I think it’s a great way to convey information in snippets for projects, presentations, timelines and all sorts of other things. So I was turned on to Piktochart by my colleague and classmate, Jenn Shelden which I used for my INTE5100 class projects. Check out my  creation page to see my piktochart mastery PHAAE: Learner Persona, PHAAE: Learning Objectives. Then I used Visme after doing a little online digging around for other tools, here is a timeline I created, TOBFC Infographic. Here’s a little side by side comparison.
