The world of contemporary students is bombarded with noise, color, and action; even their entertainment is interactive and high tech. This new environment has impacted all levels of education; however, discipline-based studies capitalizing on this multimedia rich environment have been limited. Researchers have claimed that hypermedia as a learning methodology is in its infancy and called for additional study on its efficacy. This study explored if hypermedia can effectively capitalize on this contemporary sensory rich media environment and effectively employ multimedia effects to discipline-based learning.
