The Visually Intensive Learning (VIL) marketplace is very large and can be difficult to define. It can go as far as to remove text completely from learning, or make information more visually appealing. It is not a category limited to visual learners, but rather is useful all learners. From AR, VR, and MR to YouTube, to infographics, and everything in between; there are many platforms that can be utilized for VIL. When learning is happening on a screen, VIL can be utilized to better grab the attention of learners, especially on smaller screens.
Whether the focus of a venture, or a small piece, new and mature companies a like need to create visually appealing products and provide the tools for teachers to provide visually appealing lessons. This market space is growing rapidly and expands into corporate presentations and marketing as well. Plain text just doesn’t cut it anymore.
