Project Outline

Project Outline
By Daphne Chan and Chris Leung

Objective:
Show that learners can learn and retrieve information/knowledge better through visual and interactive learning instead of mere text-based learning.

Theory:
Mayer's cognitive theory of multimedia learning and Paivio's dual-code theory [1]

Method:
Using multimedia-based vs text-based instructional materials to compare their effectiveness in acquiring new knowledge by learners. The new knowledge can be a second language, mathematics, history, etc.

A simple quiz may be conducted following the learning session to compare the effectiveness of learning by two different approaches.

Deliverables:
Interactive learning objects will be designed and implemented with Flash to maximize the learning effectiveness based on the theories of Mayer and Paivio.
