Changes in technology and new information technologies confront teachers with the challenge to create and present educational materials through a regular web site or through some of the courseware tools. During preparation of the e-learning material, they need to take into consideration the design that would lead to a more efficient e-learning. One of the elements in educational materials design is the choice of color for text and background. We are presenting the results of a study using thirty color combinations of text and background. A list of color combinations that would increase the efficiency of learning by 17%, or decrease it by 26% in comparison to a standard black (text) and white (background) combination is presented.
