Description

This study will use an experimental design to investigate the effect of "virtual labs," a multimedia instructional tool, on first-year optometry students' perceptions of learning process and objective learning outcomes. A diagnostic pretest, a cumulative exam, and a reflective evaluation will be used to determine the effect of the instructional tool. The analysis of the data collected will determine the differences in students' objective learning outcomes and perceptions of learning process between the traditional labs session and the "virtual labs" session. The findings of this study will further educators' understanding of the effect of multimedia technologies on students' learning quality.
