Quality evaluation of educational multimedia systems
AbstractMuch effort has been spent on developing and producing multimedia systems, with insufficient attention to ensure their quality This paper discusses different aspects of quality evaluation of multimedia systems, covering both cognitive and technical issues. The evaluation is viewed from three main perspectives: the product itself, how the product is used and the impacts of the product. Some relevant evaluation models for effective learning - in particular, objective-based, decision-based, value-based and naturalistic approaches - are examined and adapted for the purpose.
