Summary of "When Does Multimedia Work?" From Dr. Richard E. Mayer:
1) Spatial Contiguity - when corresponding words and pictures are presented near rather than far from each other on the page or screen
2) Temporal Contiguity - when corresponding words and pictures are presented simultaneously rather than successively in time
3) Coherence - when extraneous words, sounds, and pictures are minimized
4) Modality - when words are presented as speech rather than as text in multimedia presentations
5) Redundancy - when words are presented as speech rather than as speech and text in multimedia presentations.
