Finding images for your courses

We've all heard the saying "A picture is worth 1,000 words". So let's look into how we can bring your content to life and reduce the amount of text in your courses to make them more effective.

When you developing a course, we recommend trying to make it as visual as you can. Adding images to a course can really help to convey your topic quickly and effectively. 

Where possible we recommend using images that are specific to the organisation such as you as the course manager, your staff members, volunteers, equipment, workplaces etc. This resonates with your learners and they will feel more connected to the training.

We understand it can be hard to get out and arrange specific images, so we have put together a list for you of places where you can source generic images from the internet.

Generic stock image sites are a good place to start. The ones we have found below are free to use although in some instances you may be required to credit the originator of the image.

Sometimes you will find that you would like to include an icon in your training. This might be to explain a practical exercise, highlight an area in your business, to draw attention to a note etc. Here are some sites that focus on icons:

Adding GIFs can be a great way to get a laugh and make your content more light-hearted. They are also are a great way to provide a step by step process where users don't need to click anything.

This site will help you find or make a gif:

There are many more websites out there that you can use to add interest and effectiveness to your content. If you find any sources of images that you think other Intuto users would find valuable, we would love to hear about them so please share it with us when you get a chance!
