Abstract: Instructional materials are commonly used in assisting and facilitating learning among learners. One of the ways learners can acquire and remember information more efficiently is through the use of text and visuals they encounter in their classrooms. Infographics are a presentation technique that combines both text and visuals to represent ideas and concepts in a highly visual way, using text, illustrations, charts, bars, maps, or diagrams. More attention should be shifted toward developing a framework for designing and developing educational infographics. The aim of this paper was to develop a framework for the design, and development of infographics for educational and instructional purposes. The framework was developed based on various theories of learning and other related fields.
