Abstract : Our project focuses on researching and defining architecture guidelines for developing multimedia systems to support human learning. We base these guidelines on principles from cognitive science. During the last six months our efforts have been focused on two fronts. The first has been the continued development of an environment for teaching students chemistry, specifically, Lewis Structures. The second has been the specification of a generalized architecture for cognitive multimedia learning environments that operate on a web-based system. We are interested in how presentation factors and orientation tasks affect learning.
