Abstract

It is proposed that the use of multimedia interfaces could minimise some of the problems that result from E-learning. A comparison experiment between distance learners and face-to-face learners is reported and difference observed which might be related to the media used. A further experiment using three different media combinations for a statistical learning situation reveals that a Voice-over presentation is superior to Text-only or Text + Diagrams as predicted by Dual Coding Theory. A preliminary experiment on Student Learning style indicates that this might be an important variable but more experimentation is needed.
