Abstract

This analysis investigates two differential PowerPoint slide designs—presentation and teleprompter—for multimedia learning. Eye tracking measures assessed differences in fixations. Participants demonstrated greater fixation counts for teleprompter slides, measures of aesthetic liking evidenced that slides incorporating imagery resulted in more pleasurable learning experiences, and visually-based slides influenced more reflective learning and greater activation of information processing. The results offer practical advice for instructors wishing to increase the slide design effectiveness for improved multimedia learning.
