Abstract

Educators seeking to incorporate or design instructional videos and animations may benefit from an understanding of evidence-based guidelines in the field of multimedia learning and a consideration of techniques and ideas developed by practitioners. The current paper reports on a “work-in-progress” website that utilizes examples from a number of intuitively-designed multimedia projects and illustrates their alignment with cognitive design principles. The examples considered demonstrate alignment with research-based principles in terms of spatial contiguity, signaling, segmentation and a number of guidelines relating to the inclusion of a narration. The incorporation of animated overlays in conjunction with videos, together with techniques relating to the multimedia enhancement of hands-on activities, are also considered as further means of providing the novice with “food for thought” in the design of dynamic visualizations. A related worksheet provides a framework for an academic development activity to scaffold productive engagement with the online material.
