E-materials in distance learning and e-learning is one of the most important elements, therefore much attention and enough time should be paid for their development. There are a number of studies on e-learning quality, where criteria of quality are discussed in the context of chosen e-learning environment and the process of implementation.

Written by instructional design experts Ruth Colvin Clark and Chopeta Lyons, Graphics for Learning includes a graphic design model that guides you through the visual planning process-from needs assessment through production. No matter how much or little expertise you have working with graphics, this book will help you boost your return on investment by giving you the information you need to design and implement the most effective visuals. Graphics for Learning shows how to: Select the graphics that can impr ove learning and workplace performance. Plan the most appropriate visual for computer.

Clark, R. Lyons. 2004) Graphics for Learning – Proven Guidelines for Planning, Designing, and Evaluating Visuals in Training Materials. San Francisco: Wiley & Sons. Dr. Tony Bates is the author of eleven books in the field of online learning and distance education. He has provided consulting services specializing in training in the planning and management of online learning and distance education, working with over 40 organizations in 25 countries.

Graphics for Learning teaches you how to design effective graphics for print or online and computer-generated materials—multimedia, texts, working aids, and slides—that will maximize learning, understanding, and reasoning. Based on solid research on how people learn, this crucial resource contains best practices and shows you how to go beyond the visible features of graphics to plan visuals that are based on their communication and psychological functions. Written by instructional design experts Ruth Colvin Clark and Chopeta Lyons, Graphics for Learning includes a graphic design model that guides you through the visual planning process—from needs assessment through production. No matter how much or little expertise you have working with graphics, this book will help you boost your return on investment by giving you the information you need to design and implement the most effective visuals. Graphics for Learning shows how to: Select the graphics that can impr ove learning and workplace performance. Plan the most appropriate visual for computer or paper instructional materials. Design the best graphics for instructional content. Tailor visuals for individual learners. Avoid using the wrong visuals for motivational purposes. Understand the characteristics of graphics that support (or disrupt) learning. Follow a systematic graphic design model that helps you plan graphics that match your instructional context.

The book reminds me a of a college text book. I lost interest in reading the material after a few pages.

It is usually quite difficult to find a good How-To book in the Infographics/Instructional Design arena. So, I was quite delighted to discover this book by Dr Ruth Clark and another book (Creating Graphics for Learning and Performance : Lessons in Visual Literacy) by Dr Linda Lohr.

I have found these information very useful:
- 7 communication functions of graphics (decorative, representational, mnemonic, organizational, relational, transformational, interpretive)
- mapping of appropriate graphical functions (or types) to different content types (facts, concepts, processes, procedures, principles)
- numerous graphical examples for different content types
- numerous instructional design tips, e.g., chunking and sequencing to minimizing memory load, use of visual cues to direct attention, use of certain graphic types to build mental models (e.g., cause and effect)

What would have been even more useful could be the setup of an online Infographic Design resource where members of the public can collaboratively view, discuss and refine the guidelines, use and contribute more examples (especially), etc. Would certainly look forward to be involved in such an endeavor.

I was extremely disappointed with this book. The theory is very inaccurate. The authors don't seem to have a grasp on what working memory is or on mental models. I was looking for a book that applies the practice of graphics in education to sound theory. This is not it.

This is a natural follow-up to Ms. Clark's "e-Learning and the Science of Instruction." For me, no other author has written about e-Learning visual and textual design and content, with the authority, clearity, and explicitness as Ms. Clark. "Graphics for Learning," clearing links design concepts to supporting reseach in a manner not often found in instructional and graphic design books. I appreciate reading facts and not someone's opinion about why one should do one thing or the other. Especially for those designing e-Learning or distance learning this is a must have book.

"Graphics for Learning" takes on the challenging task of bridging two ways of looking at instructional graphics: the academic research that deals with how people learn from graphics and the practical application of that research. You don't need a Phd to read and understand the research findings, as Clark and Lyons summarize and explain them well, with ample use of helpful graphics.

The books flows easily from the foundation of research into the practical planning of graphics for instruction. The emphasis is always on the crucial process of planning and thinking about graphics that support learning goals and fit the situation. The authors do a good job of integrating case studies and examples to make their points clear.

One thing I especially appreciate is that Clark and Lyons recognize the realities of time and budget constraints and offer advice and examples that work whether the budget is large or small.

This book is an excellent resource for instructional designers and others who are serious about taking their communications to a higher level of effectiveness.

Good: It provides sufficient research evidence to make the point that graphics, if designed appropriately, can indeed enhance the learning experience.

Bad: The authors do not follow their own advice while selecting or creating graphics for this book. For example, fig 1.4, has information displayed in the reverse order (section 1 at the bottom, section 4 at the top). Meaningless decorative curves that don't let you focus on the actual message appear in fig 20.1. Figs 3.3, 3.5, 5.1, & 7.1 are so crowded with information that it is impossible to understand what the author is trying to say. The graphics & animations that have been selected from various e-learning courses are the most atrocious that I have ever seen (and I have seen a lot in my 10 plus years of being in the learning industry). There is not a single graphic in this entire book that would even marginally pass a professional design review.

Ugly: Instructional designers & their managers are going to read this book & start creating graphics that look like the samples in this book, thereby lowering the quality of graphics in e-learning courses even more than what it is now (which is pretty sad, to say the least).The authors have shown absolutely no respect for the field of graphic design (which is not new, especially in the e-learning industry). If they had any regard for the expertise that they don't themselves have, they would have engaged a professional graphic designer to create & select the graphics for this book.

Conclusion: Please take the research advice from this book, but do not think, even for a brief moment, that the graphics used in this book follow that advice.
