This course trains you to design compelling MS PowerPoint multimedia presentation based on Richard Mayer’s Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning. By applying the theory’s ten multimedia principles, you will be able to design and present multimedia presentations that are in tune with the brain’s cognitive processing of incoming visual and audio information. The training focuses on overcoming the Copy & Paste Phenomenon, a widespread habit among most MS PowerPoint presenters. One should realise that presentation format as compared to a reading format copied and pasted from various sources are not the same in its effectiveness in delivering instructions. Failure to adapt the reading materials into cognitively tune multimedia format will adversely impact the delivery of the presentation. This course will provide insights into the cognitive mind and guide you to produce multimedia presentations that are engaging and easy to understand.
