Impact of Multimedia in Education

How does adding multimedia to your lessons help improve student engagement and learning?

1) "Diversity in learning combinations of media such as graphics, animations, and text can certainly boost the academic level and their interest in the learning process” (Zin et. al, 2012, p. 103). It is essential that educators appeal to the variety of learning styles that are present in the classroom, if they are to reach and teach all students. 2)"Multimedia offers the lecturer many benefits including: satisfying educational objectives, increasing students understanding, demonstrating events, showing places, and conducting experiments which would otherwise be impossible" (Asthana, n.d., para. 25). Multimedia technology also allows students to learn inside the classroom, at home, or wherever they have internet access.3) Utilizing various multimedia technologies, such as text, videos, graphics, sound, and animation into the educational setting helps to relate to students, grab their attention, and allow them to retain educational information. "New technologies are most beneficial, however, when they support and deepen students’ understanding of important educational subject matter” (Wiske, Franz, & Breit, 2005, p. 42).

"Interactive multimedia weaves five basic types of media into the learning environment: text, video, sound, graphics, and animation. Since the mode of learning is interactive and not linear, a student or teacher can choose what to investigate next" (Asthana, n.d., para. 3).

"Multimedia can stimulate more than one sense at a time, and in doing so, may be more attention-getting and attention-holding" (Athens Academy, n.d., para. 1).






"Graphics provide the most creative possibilities for a learning session. Images make use of a massive range of cortical skills" (Asthana, n.d., para. 16).

"The representation of information by using the visualization capabilities of video can be immediate and powerful" (Asthana, n.d., para. 9).

"Text acts as the keystone tying all of the other media elements together" (Asthana, n.d., para. 7).
