Multimedia Principle Movie

The Multimedia principle incorporates both words and graphics into an e-learning instructional design. According to Mayer and Clark (2011), evidence has shown the outcomes and results to be greater than simply offering words alone. “By words, we mean printed text (that is, words printed on the screen that people read) or spoken text (that is, words presented as speech that people listen to through earphones or speakers). By graphics we mean static illustrations such as drawings, charts, graphs, maps, or photos, and dynamic graphics such as animation or video” (Clark & Mayer, 2011, p. 70). The coordination of words and pictures together should be a well-thought out component that is developed during the design phase. According to Clark and Mayer (2011), learners are “likely to understand material when they can engage in active learning—that is, when they engage in relevant cognitive processing such as attending to the relevant material in the lesson, mentally organizing the material into a coherent cognitive representation, and mentally integrating the material with their existing knowledge” (p. 71). Multimedia presentations encourage the learning audience to process the information and develop relationships between the words and graphics. The multimedia principle encourages engagement and therefore is likely to produce greater outcomes. (Laura) - Piano Chord Vault

This an excellent example of the Multimedia Principle that is easy to follw and understand. Great use of grahics and animations. Luis Gonzalez

These are just a few examples of how the multimedia principle can be effectively applied to e-learning instructional design.  When used properly, graphics will enhance the learning experience.  Using graphics in conjunction with words is most effective when their is a correlation between the two, and one does not overpower the other.  (Laura)
