Advanced Multimedia Learning Laboratory

We are a research and development group interested in how people learn from multimedia materials and how these materials affect learners.

In particular, we study how people learn from and are affected by animations, animated series, computerized simulations and videogames. We are interested in content learning in the context of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. At present, we mainly focus on primary-level computing education. We also focus on intrapersonal learning outcomes in social sciences, such as attitude change toward contested topics.

One of our key research questions is how to augment learning materials to increase learners’ intrinsic motivation and thereby improve learning.

We are also interested in the development and production of instructional applications and more.

Our host institution is the Charles University Faculty of Mathematics and Physics and its School of Computer Science; namely Department of Software and Computer Science Education.
