Color psychology for eLearning design:
- Use Colors Based on Their Meanings
Even developers who personally dismiss the idea that every color has a distinct meaning should take color connotations into account when designing eLearning courses. This is because the students may consider the significance of color, whether consciously or unconsciously.
- Enhance Learning and Improve Comprehension
As color connects neuropathways, people remember colors better than verbal or textual cues alone; for instance, The Institute for Color Research – now called Color Matters, confirmed that color can improve learning from 55% to 78% as well as comprehensive by as much as 73%.
- Improve Readability With Color
Color can enhance clarity and readability in the text by as much as 40%.
- Use Strong Colors Strategically
Developers should use strong and bright colors sparingly or place them over neutral background tones when designing eLearning materials.
- Use Color to Direct Attention
Color can help reduce boredom and passivity, thus improving attention spans. When learners pay more attention while learning, recall rates and reaction times increases.
- Choose the Right Color Combinations
One of the most useful and simplest aspects of color theory is the color wheel. This shows which colors are harmonious and helps ensure developers create a color combination that avoids straining learners’ eyes.
