The purpose of this study is to create design principles for the production of manuscript to e-learning. The work aims to survey the process of producing manuscript for e-learning in its full form, as well the production on writing specific tutorials. This study is regarding both the aspect on how to convey a message for a specific audience and how to present it based on theories from the fields of Information Design. Theories in Rhetorics and Narratology as well as principles for Multimedia Learning will be applied to results gained from empirical data produced through interviews. Hopefully, this will result in an applicable synthesis of design principles for collecting and arranging subjects into an e-learning that is user-friendly and accessible. The work is based on an information design issue at the Stockholm based Hospitality and Culinary school Restaurangakademien. The issue derives from the fact that Restaurangakademien is at a start up stage in implementing e-learning to its range of courses. With no previous experience from the field the problem is how to get started and by which methods. If this survey will be able to produce anything useful, it means information design has made a little contribution in developing e-learning.
