Michael Norton asked me if he could publish the attached article in the Facilitators Community a few weeks ago; I thought it might be of use to others. It is based on my blogs for this community which were updated for publication in BURISA 's newsletter December 2011.

This is excellent, really like the simplicity and cutting edge style of Peter Orntoft's photos. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the feedback Nicola, I'm pleased that the document was of use to you. I agree with you about Peter's photos, perhaps it's because we aren't used to seeing data presented in this way?

Really fascinating, love to be able to use some of those Noun Project images but sadly my Jurassic period LG issue computer has only an ancient version of internet explorer so I couldn't see past your doc. I'm keen to see places where images like this can be found - I'm no artist and have no access to fancy graphics packages so have cobbled infographics together with excel and maybe publisher - but these sort of images would be so useful. Many thanks

Thank you for your comments Maria, unfortunately the noun symbols do require google chrome or an alternative web browser. Here are a couple of free infographics tools which don't require you to be an artist or a graphic designer. http://www.wordle.net/ - helps create word clouds, paste your words in and the word cloud is created; http://piktochart.com/ Michael Norton told me about this site, he used it to create an infographic for his blog http://mik0ton.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/one-of-the-keys-to-a-successful-online-community/ Hope these help : ) Richard
