Visual recording is a method of processing and storing information using visuals combined with text instead of text only. We discussed it earlier in the blog post “Getting started with Visual Harvesting“. While I’m starting up a training in my organization, I had the opportunity to do a quick recap of the information, which is shared in this blog.
Don’t know what visual recording is? Please read this blog first.
The slideset for the training can be found here: http://www.slideshare.net/KarelNijs/opleiding-visual-harvesting-slides
You don’t need paper to visual record your meeting, seminar or whatever. There’s an app for that” is also valid in these case. With these apps I’m able to do visual harvests at my iPad. You can use your finger, a digital pen or a Wacom pressure sensitive pen. I does take some time to get used to working on an iPad, but you immediately have your digital result ready to share.
