The mission of the Journal is to present wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary positions on multimedia learning and the assessment of multimedia learning content to help increase its effectiveness, to help increase the attention of learners and to help enhance the acquisition of knowledge through visual content.
Multimedia learning now reaches across all disciplines and touches all learners, from patients needing to learn better post-operative recovery skills, to technicians needing to learn better installation skills for critical infrastructure, to students in public and private schools needing to learn from compositions that optimize attention.

The term we still use to designate someone's attachment to a particular language, her potentially flawless competence, or the very "place" for her thoughts to emerge in coherent form, is "mother tongue". We take it to be a natural condition of language acquisition, equally valid for every individual speaker, and thus forget that it is a mere metaphorical reference to the "first" language, spoken by what is referred to, with an even more misleading metaphor, a "native" speaker.
Throughout history, the use and connotations of the expression "mother tongue" have undergone several changes. In the Middle Ages and Early Modern period, the Latin "lingua materna" referred to the vernaculars in opposition to the learned Latin.
