PowerPoint is the widespread multimedia presentation tool, but the traditional slide show presentation simply enlarges the passive nature of the instruction. This study integrated the modularity concept and annotation into interactive PowerPoint presentation based on the cognitive theory of multimedia learning and investigated the participantís reflection and learning performance through post-test, motivation survey and the experimental teaching activities. An exploratory test was conducted with 76 students in a university of technology. The results showed that under the self-controlled learning environment, instructor/students could easily hyperlink the particular segment they need so as to reduce studentís extraneous cognitive load. Also, the interactive PowerPoint presented the related bullet points and annotation simultaneously which could benefit to reinforce their learning. Accordingly, the findings of this study revealed that the interactive PowerPoint presentation could promote students more engaged and acquired more information and remembered more ideas. Furthermore, the students in the experimental group could get the higher posttest scores and learning motivation than those of the control group.
