Reducing cognitive load in multimedia navigation
AbstractThe emergence of integrated technologies is facilitating the configuration of vision and sound in ways previously impossible with discrete technologies. The attributes of infinite storage, continually increasing speed of access and phenomenal manipulation of images and sound are moving rapidly towards the notion of virtual reality in technology based information and presentation systems. What are the implications for instructional design? This paper discusses effective multimedia design strategies which results in the creation of multimedia programs. Implications for the development of materials with groups located at geographically different places are discussed. This impacts on the possibility of developing multimedia material between different groups in different countries.
