Abstract
Situational Interest (SI) manifests as a direct result of an individual’s surroundings or environment and is comprised of triggered-SI, the initial arousing, and maintained-SI, long-term influence that translates into personal significance. With respect to multimedia learning environments, elements or principles of multimedia design have proven to increase both triggered-SI and maintained-SI. However, the question remains whether or not gender of an individual in such an environment has an impact on SI. This presentation examines the role of gender in learner preferences and proposes future research questions on the topic.
