Abstract: Collaborative multimedia learning is a complex and demanding scenario. Differently coded representations, interactive components, and communication have to be managed and processed simultaneously. Focusing learners' attention to relevant information might help to reduce complexity. This study was designed to investigate whether collaborative learning with multimedia can be improved by information cueing, i.e. highlighting essential information in differently coded learning material, and by providing relevant causal relations in interactive learning material. Learning dyads were compared in four experimental groups which differed with regard to information cueing during two subsequent collaboration phases. Learning material comprised multiple static representations (phase 1) and the possibility to manipulate these representations interactively (phase 2). Preliminary results (N = 24) indicate that cueing relevant information during collaboration focuses learners' attention to essential aspects, helps to structure their learning discourse, and improves learning outcome.
