Integrating Multimedia into the Malaysian Classroom: Engaging Students in Interactive Learning

Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v3 n3 Article 4 p31-37 Jul 2004
In recent years, with the infusion of the multimedia technology into the education arena, traditional educational materials can be translated into interactive electronic form through the use of multimedia authoring tools. This has allowed teachers to design and incorporate multimedia elements and choreograph them in an orderly sequence to convey the message in an interactive and multi-sensory learning environment. The focus in education is thus moving away from the conventional "chalk-and-talk" method to one which uses multimedia as the instructional media and a platform in teaching and learning. This presentation focuses on using the multimedia design process (MDP) to enable educators to re-design their educational curricula into an interactive and media-rich learning environment. This multimedia educational design process will reinforce and strengthen the traditional instructional communication process (ICP) and foster a number of innovative methods to communicate knowledge to the learners. In this context, there is a need to adjust the educator's approach to teaching, preparing content and delivering learning materials. As the present generation becomes more familiar with computers and the Internet, they are going to expect information in the classrooms to be delivered in the same pattern.
