eLCC: Making Assignments Visual: PicMonkey

Why Use PicMonkey?

PicMonkey is a free, web-based tool that allows you to enhance and edit photos, as well as create original designs with images and text.  Incorporating PicMonkey into your assignments does the following:

  • Allows students to practice communicating in a "visual shorthand".
  • Creates an opportunity for deeper engagement with course concepts and assignments.
  • Utilizes students' higher-order cognitive skills like analysis, conceptualizing, and synthesizing.
  • Helps achieve a paperless classroom.
