One of the biggest challenges that instructional designers face is figuring out how to present complex information to learners in a way that’s easy to understand. Charts and tables are a great way to take a set of complex data and turn it into a visual experience that’s digestible for your learners. And with Rise 360, you can take that a step further and make your charts interactive! Let’s take a closer look at four easy ways to display data in your Rise 360 courses.
