The medium and the message
AbstractFrom discussions expounding the virtues of interactive multimedia (IMM) appearing frequently in the popular press, education and training literature, conference presentations and seminars, it could be construed that IMM is being heralded as the answer to training and education needs for the 1990s, but what does the phenomenon offer trainers and/or educators, striving to achieve cost efficient and effective learning? It seems reasonable to suggest that developments in the understanding of teaching and learning methods that enhance and nurture cognitive skill acquisition are what underlies the potential contribution of IMM to improved learning effectiveness.
