Abstract

This presentation synthesizes recent literature on cognitive load theory, reports findings from a study of the comparative effects of varying tutorial designs, and provides methods and techniques for effective and efficient web-based tutorial development. As online education becomes increasingly more routine in higher education, business and industry, and military training, it is critical that online multimedia tutorials and other instructional aids be designed with explicit detail towards cognitive research and with attention to instructional design principles. Online courses, blended courses, and other forms of self-directed learning environments are not only enhanced, but often require the development of multimedia tutorials in order for students to learn. This presentation highlights methods and techniques derived from an empirical study involving the use of static and video-based online tutorials as well as contemporary cognitive load research.
