1. Remove 3d from charts, 3D the distorts the data

2. Pie charts are harder to interpret when comparing data

3. Do not manipulate the axis by starting on a non 0 scale

4. Make the bars thick

5. Remove the gridlines

6. Place the legend on the bars

7. Use a monochromatic color scheme with one outstanding color

8. Rotate the chart and sort in size

9. When having positive and negative values consider color and axis

A. When using iconography do not use half icons

B. When using iconography do not use scaled icons

This will make your charts glanceable in an eLearning, instead of referenceable
