This paper describes a design structure for presentations that use a thematic image as learning element to make the presentation more memorable for later recall. The use of the thematic image is the start and end of the presentation and may also be returned to again during the presentation. The image acts as a learning anchor either to recall previous information or as a focal point for new information. This design has a theoretical basis from the models of Working Memory, Symbol Systems, Gestalt Theory, Component Display Theory and Conditions of Learning.
