Richard E MayerMany people have opinions about PowerPoint, but few can speak on the topic with the authority of Richard E. Mayer, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Named the most prolific researcher in the field of educational psychology, Rich is the author of 18 books and more than 250 articles and chapters. His 12 years of research in multimedia learning and problem-solving have important implications for PowerPoint users.

Richard was interviewed by Cliff Atkinson, who is an author, speaker, and consultant who translates complex ideas into communications that get results. Cliff is also the author of the bestselling Beyond Bullet Points, published in four editions by Microsoft Press.
