Monarch’s paper surveys real-world examples

Does multimedia—including video, audio, and gamification—promote learning? Combining a literature survey with data from real-world examples, Monarch’s presentation will bring to light measurable impacts of multimedia on learning outcomes.

From the conference program:

“Evidence exists that both supports and refutes the effectiveness of multimedia strategies—such as video, audio, games, and formative interactions—to achieve learning outcomes. In this paper we survey the research to analyze and identify the contexts where multimedia is used most effectively. We also assess strategies for addressing different types of learners, and specifically reluctant learners. Our outcome includes recommendations and guidelines on best practices for using multimedia strategies in asynchronous learning environments. You’ll walk away from this session with knowledge and tools to inform your learning design of materials for online delivery.”

The conference schedule is available online.
