It is a fact that 83% of learning is through the sense of sight. Hence, teachers should capitalise on this
and use it to the fullest advantage in helping their students learn more effectively. However, too often.
visual media are not designed appropriately and learning does not materialise.
With the present emphasis of using IT in instruction, it is important for teachers to know how to
design IT presentations appropriately so as to effect learning. There are certain basic principles and
guidelines to follow if visuals of educationally sound quality are to emerge. The purpose of this paper
is to provide teachers with these principles and explain how they can be applied to the designing of
computer-generated presentations. The principles discussed will range from those dealing with the
selection of graphic elements to those pertaining to the selection of lettering, the choice of colours and
the layout of the verbal and visual elements.
