Designing multimedia presentations that are consistent with the cognitive principles of multimedia learning has been empirically demonstrated to benefit student learning. Through the lens of cognitive load theory (CLT), we will examine Richard Mayer’s cognitive theory of multimedia learning (CTML) (including, for example, coherence, signaling, segmenting, modality principles) that can be used to design any face-to-face or online presentation of to-be-learned material. Additional readings will include empirical literature demonstrating the learning benefits of multimedia presentations using several multimedia principles. The final project will be to develop an annotated multimedia lesson presentation, applying cognitive principles of multimedia learning, for a specific course that you might teach.
