The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the design and development of multimedia presentation mode in the subject of History entitled "Malacca History” using linear mode (L-M) versus segmented mode (S-M) in reducing cognitive load for different cognitive style and gender. This study will try to attempt to answer a few questions whether L-M and S-M can increase student’s achievement based on different cognitive style and gender. The primary research questions for this study are any; i) significant difference between linear mode or segmented mode towards student’s achievement?; ii) significant difference between linear mode or segmented mode towards student’s achievement that is different in cognitive style?; iii) significant difference between linear mode or segmented mode towards student’s achievement that is different in gender?; and iv) significant difference in motivational score between student using different modes (linear and segmented)? Seventy-two form 3 students from a secondary school served as subjects and were randomly assigned to a different group based on GEFT test.The results of this study indicated that FI student’s performance gives no significant difference in achievement than the FD students when using both mode L-M and S-M. Female subjects scored higher than male subjects in term of mean score but statistically, this value gives no significant difference. In addition, students treated with mode L-M shows no better motivational perception level compared to S-M.
