From the Teachers' Perspective: A Way of Simplicity for Multimedia Design
Hirca, Necati
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v10 n1 Article 13 Jun 2009
Presently, teaching and presentation methods are changing from chalk and blackboards to interactive methods. Multimedia technology is presently used in many schools, however much of the commercially-available software programs don't allow teachers to share their experiences. Adobe Captivate 3 is a computer program that enables teachers, without programming or multimedia skills, to easily design/create their own multimedia for use in individualized situations. This paper tries to encourage the teachers to create and develop their own educational software for the regional curriculum and diverse learning groups. The presenter had conducted a course with nine teachers during the 2007-2008 academic year in Erzurum, Turkey. After the course, participants were interviewed. The survey data was collected through semi-structured interviews, a qualitative method, in order to gain insights into teachers' opinions. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, and the findings were digitalized and presented. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
