Evaluating Course Design Principles for Multimedia Learning Materials
Scott, Bernard; Cong, Chunyu
Campus-Wide Information Systems, v27 n5 p280-292 2010
Purpose: This paper aims to report on evaluation studies of principles of course design for interactive multimedia learning materials. Design/methodology/approach: At the Defence Academy of the UK, Cranfield University has worked with military colleagues to produce multimedia learning materials for courses on "Military Knowledge". The courses are part of Officer Career Development training for junior officers in the army. The courses were developed following clearly defined course design principles believed to be best suited for the delivery of resource-based learning materials. Evaluation studies included focus groups, interviews, questionnaires and observation studies. Findings: The overall findings suggest that the course design principles are indeed regarded by students as supportive of effective learning. Originality/value: The findings of this research are being fed back to MOD colleagues with the view to discussing how the course might be improved. (Contains 7 tables, 4 figures, and 1 note.)
