It will be an invaluable resource for students, educators, and researchers alike.' Tamara van Gog, Professor of Educational Sciences, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

It expertly integrates theoretical and practical considerations for research on multimedia learning. The third edition is a valuable resource for those planning to optimise multimedia resources for educational advancement.' Olusola Adesope, Boeing Distinguished Professor of STEM Education, Washington State University, USA
'Richard E. Mayer is the father of research into multimedia learning. The scope, details and direction of the field have been largely determined by his work. The previous editions of Multimedia Learning provided the best summary of the field. The consequent high expectations of the third edition are fully met.' John Sweller, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology, University of New South Wales, Australia
'This textbook is a labor of love covering three decades of research on how to combine words and pictures in educational technologies. This updated edition reviews evidence on when principles should be implemented, boundary conditions, and avenues for future research. It is a must read for students, practioners, and scientists who design multimedia for learning!' Danielle McNamara, Director of the Science of Learning and Educational Technology (SoLET) Laboratory, Arizona State University
