In this study, we examined the extent of students’ use of multimedia learning modules to determine if this behavior could be used as an indicator for an early warning system related to poor course performance. We collected student clickstream data from an online resource to determine the extent to which students interact with multimedia modules. We categorized students as “viewers” and “nonviewers” and identified patterns of student interaction with MLMs. Students who more often viewed the MLMs earned a significantly higher course grade. Therefore, students who demonstrate limited interaction with online multimedia learning modules could be flagged for intervention.
