Multimedia courseware is often in the form of power point slides containing multimedia information from text, graphic, animation, audio, and video contents. It offers the students with “teaching manipulation” that has comprehensive sensory stimuli. In daily teaching, we find that the courseware tends to be simple adaptation of text and graphics, which undermines the advantages of multimedia courseware since it only transfers the contents from the blackboards to the slides. Therefore, in preparation of the courseware, it is necessary that we take into consideration of the cognitive patterns with the help of cognitive psychology in order to make good multimedia courseware that can stimulate learning efficiency in students, and achieve satisfactory classroom teaching results.
