Multimedia learning is learning from words and pictures. The rationale for studying multimedia learning is that people can learn more deeply from words and pictures than from words alone. A goal of research on multimedia learning is to understand how to design multimedia learning environments that promote meaningful learning.
As a learning systems engineer and developer I have been using Hype for the past 5 years as creating HTML5 animation and widget to be embedded in Adobe Captivate, Storyline, Rise, various LMSs, and as standalone job aids for adult learners.
I feel that educators and developers; whom are sometimes lightly funded and trained in the arts of design and development would greatly benefit from Hype. I am taking this topic to show how an educator, at any level, be able to make that connection between the learner and content to reach and accomplish the learning objective.
I will begin on how to use Hype with Rise and Storyline. More to follow.
