Introduction: Designing multimedia learning environments should consist of the evidence-based study
and principals about the human learning process. Eye tracking is a way based on the learner processing
of learning materials which presented in multimedia learning environments. The aim of the study was to
examine the use of the eye-tracking method to investigate the cognitive processes in multimedia learning
Methods: This is a review study. The data collected from the Science Direct, Emerlan Databases,
Ebsco, and Sage, in the year of 2000-2013. The keywords were multimedia learning, eye movements, visual
attention, and visual tracking
Findings: In this research, we examined using the eye-tracking method to understand the cognitive
processes in multimedia learning. Some explanations about the eye tracking method, the used scales, the
challenges of using this method, have been described in this article. The principles of the instructional design
and the educational multimedia are discussed.
Conclusion: The eye-tracking method provides a unique way for examining multimedia learning theories,
especially the cognitive processing during learning. Applying this method to multimedia learning researchers
in the future is worth wise.
Keywords: Multimedia learning, Eye Movements, Visual Attention, Visual Tracking.
