Pavel Smolka, Martin Žáček, Petra Konečná


Educational materials are a key component of the educational process. In this respect, it is an instrument that is essential throughout the education pro-cess and where quality plays a key role. The quality of educational materials must be assessed in terms of expertise and timeliness, and in terms of ob-servance and application of didactic and pedagogical principles. Only high-quality educational materials bring greater efficiency to the entire education process. An essential aspect of assessing the quality of educational materials is also their ergonomics. That is, assessing whether the educational material works in accordance with the author's ideas. The principle of ergonomics, which includes comprehensibility and user-friendliness, is already common-ly used in the design of web pages or advertising flyers. Their aim is also to communicate information and lead the attention of the reader. This article is devoted to the definition of the methodology by which we evaluate this er-gonomics for educational materials and based on research we are able to formulate recommendations in this area.
