Editorial Reviews

Review

"...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)

Book Description

Richard E. Mayer asks whether people learn more deeply when ideas are expressed in words and pictures rather than in words alone. He reviews 12 principles of instructional design that are based on experimental research studies and grounded in a theory of how people learn from words and pictures. The result is what Mayer calls the cognitive theory of multimedia learning.

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.

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.

A bit dry... it's all theory written by a cognitive psychologist. The principles Mayer discusses are largely common-sense if you think about it, but there are a few gems and it's nice to have things spelled out and synthesized for you. Definitely not that long of a read. It was assigned reading for an Instructional Multimedia class I am enrolled in. Would I read it for pleasure? Nah. Would I assign it for reading if I were a teacher? Sure! Don't expect your mind to be blown though.

This book contains loads of information but is quite repetitive. For a book on multimedia, it is seriously devoid of graphics.
