Benefits of the Visual Guide

Efficient ​

Compared with text, visual presentation is superior in the efficiency of communication. People only tend to remember 10% of what they hear, 20% of what they read, but 80% of what they see.

Ease of Understanding

One of the primary advantages the visual guide offers is simplicity. For example, a chart tells you immediately where and how a knowledge element fits in the big picture.

Cross-cultural Communication

When people learn in a foreign language, unfamiliar vocabulary or sentence structure lead to ambiguity. Adding pictures and symbols to the message remove those obstacles. ​


Visual materials are relatively more eye-pleasing. When presenting with colors and diagrams, it makes people relaxed and helps them memorize the information better.     ​
