Designing a Web Enhanced Multimedia Learning Environment (WEMLE) for Project Management
Nooriafsha, Mehryar; Todhunter, Barrie
Journal of Interactive Learning Research, v15 n1 p33-41 Jan 2004
This article demonstrates how a Web-Enhanced Multimedia System for Project Management was developed and used, and then tested for its educational effectiveness. The design of this system was based on the premise that the use of educational multimedia should have a basis and a purpose. This multimedia system, Web Enhanced Multimedia Learning Environment (WEMLE) for Project Management, is based on the simulation of the way project management is taught within an undergraduate course at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). It incorporates established educational concepts and the latest in web-based multimedia design. The multimedia materials were developed in conjunction with the Distance and e-Learning Centre (DEC) of USQ. The project was funded and supported by both the Faculty of Business and DEC. The feedback received so far has been extremely encouraging in terms of the system's teaching and learning effectiveness.
