If the instructional material is not clearly understood by the learner, then the investment in all of the other design issues is wasted. Many novice Web designers become interested in the bells and whistles that the Web has to offer and have little content. For the same reason, movement - the use of blinking text, JavaScript, and animated graphics - should be used for attracting attention, not for decoration. Page layout should be simple and clean because cluttered layout on Web pages, just as in print and broadcast media, do not necessarily add to the instructional process.

In addition, using many of the special effects available on the World Wide Web add a level of complexity that may not be necessary or desirable in an educational environment - and learning how to do these may not be the most beneficial use of the designer's time, especially in the early development of Web-Based Instruction.
