Images are central to human communication and have become a defining aspect of most digital media. Contemporary research affirms that in certain cases, images may convey meaning more efficiently and quickly than text, and when combined with other media and modes of communication, images enhance comprehension.

With the rise of the Web, video has increasingly become a central way that we communicate with others. Because video uses multiple modes, combining still and moving images, animation and/or audio, it not only entertains us, but can be used to educate and promote causes which bring greater social justice, for example.
Multimedia literacy in the 21st century requires knowledge of how to assess and produce media which relies on data. Because of their interactive nature, data-driven multimedia texts can help users make informed decisions by helping them navigate among data to produce new knowledge for themselves dynamically in real time.
