Short Description

Course multimedia are a sine qua non for distance learning. Multimedia presentations include text, images, audio, video, and animation. This presentation is focused on evidence-based guidelines on how to best create multimedia learning. The presenter will discuss how to combine text, audio, and video/animation to create effective and engaging multimedia learning. Instructional designers and developers of distance learning can apply these guidelines to create multimedia that complements the psychology of learning.

Abstract

Nowadays, most distance learning courses use some form of multimedia (text, audio, video, and still and motion visuals) to communicate content. Multimedia evidence-based guidelines are based on the notion that people learn better and more deeply when text, audio, and video/animation are used in the right combination (Clark & Mayer, 2011). Often, course multimedia may fall short due to “too much of a good thing” or “not enough of a good thing.” Participants will become familiar with and learn how to avoid these two pitfalls. The presenter will discuss, and participants will see demonstrations of the principles and processes of learning and how to integrate and align text and graphics. Participants will determine how to reduce verbal redundancy and omit extraneous materials from multimedia presentations. Style and voice quality in multimedia will also be addressed.

This session is intended for instructional designers, educators, developers, and consumers of multimedia learning. The session is designed to help you decide when and how to apply the pedagogical principles of multimedia learning and drive your distance learning courses to the next level.
