Product Description


"...The material is well structured and goes into succeeding levels of detail to describe what works and what doesn’t. Cognitive aspects of how learning is delivered are thoroughly presented, using many charts and graphics to provide alternate means of viewing the text data. The text relies on extensive research performed by the author and other notable cognitive psychologists and instructional designers in the field. The book can serve as an excellent text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in instructional design. It can also be used by professionals in the field, as a reference guide to what may be new cognitive research applied to the area of multimedia learning."
--Bernice Glenn, Reviews.com (Computing Reviews)


"Written and admirable clarity...Helps to clarify a complex subject and to correct some frequent misconceptions about learning with new media. It is excellent in terms of its comprehensibility to readers of many different backgrounds. As a consequence, it should both help practitioners develop a more differentiated view of learning from multimedia and stimulate further discussions among scientists in the field." Contemporary Psychology "well-organized chapters...Well-written and informative, the volume provides specific information for improving multimedia presentaions. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above." CHOICE Jan 2002 "[T]his book should be read by all students of multimedia learning." Imagination, Cognition and Personality

HASH(0x8f664d80) out of 5 stars A classic 10 July 2013
By D. Schubert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this text during my masters degree. It's nice to see the title is still around and going strong, with subsequent authors piggy-backing on many of the principles he introduces in this text. I have relied on the principles espoused in this text when considering how to design interactive courseware. I still refer to this classic book now and then as a refresher.

HASH(0x8fd20018) out of 5 stars I'll be keeping this one. 26 Dec. 2012
By katlover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mayer discusses why his principles of design work by providing supporting research and even includes boundary conditions that may limit the success of a particular design principle. If it were me, I would probably have organized the chapters differently, but the information is good, regardless of the order. Definitely good for and Instructional Designer to reference.

HASH(0xa9269cc0) out of 5 stars Fantastic second edition 16 Nov. 2009
By Mark Fazioli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mayer is the expert when it comes to multimedia and its relationship to learning. The first edition was fundamental in my studies on personalized narration in the online environment. Mayer presents information in a sensible, clear manner that is easy to follow and makes sense. I am excited to see a second edition and look forward to reading it cover to cover. I highly recommend anything by Richard Mayer--you will not be disappointed!

HASH(0x8f13aa44) out of 5 stars Expand my understanding of Learner-Centered Design 29 Aug. 2009
By M. Irwan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In my opinion, Mayer has successfully explained how Learner-Centered Design(LCD) principles can be used in creating multimedia presentation that will result in better learning. Just because a course or lesson is presented in multimedia does not automatically make it good. One needs to apply LCD principles to make it good.
