Methods Multimedia learningmaterials adapted from comics were used. A total of 60 college students conducted 2（picture type）× 2（text type）two factors inter subject design. The subjects completed a priori knowledge questionnaire, emotion measurement questionnaire, academic achievement test, internal motivation questionnaire, and cognitive load self-assessment scale. Results The transfer performance of anthropomorphic pictures was significantly higher than that of non-anthropomorphic pictures. Anthropomorphic pictures significantly reduced the perceptual difficulty of the subjects, and anthropomorphic words significantly improved the internal motivation of the subjects.
