Visual-Literacy.org. A blended E-Learning Program for Visualization in Communication, Business, and Engineering
As a project funded by the national Swiss Virtual Campus (SVC) e-learning initiative, visual-literacy.org (or viz.ch) is an orchestrated attempt to educate Swiss university students about the merits and risks of visual communication. In this project, the University of Lugano (USI) together with its partners has developed a blended learning program to foster the visual literacy of communication, business, and engineering students in Switzerland through peer- and resource-based learning approaches. In this text we briefly outline the background, scope and impact of this e-learning initiative.
