Designing according to cognitive theory of multimedia design in one place

Since I’ve begun to flirt with instructional design years ago, I was faced with several theories about how e-learning content should be prepared to assure that the learners get the most out of it. It was really challenging to connect everything I’ve read and found about cognitive theory into one meaningful whole and how to get a quick overview about main principles of multimedia design.

In the end I gathered everything that, in my opinion, is the basis of multimedia design, in this Learning map, which I hope will give you an overview about:

  • The three basic cognitive principles
  • Tips about how these principles should be applied in your multimedia design

Enjoy the following Learning map.
