Listen: ‘Speaking of Higher Ed’ podcast talks about multimedia learning 

How do the words and pictures you use in your course content help improve learning for your students?

On this episode of Speaking of Higher Ed, Arthur Takahashi, adjunct faculty member and instructional designer at Augusta University, discusses how he uses multimedia learning principles in his course design and delivery to do just that. Mayer and Moreno’s 1999 study of the cognitive principles of multimedia learning continues to inform the creation of learning materials, he said.

Before discussing how he uses Mayer’s principles, Takahashi touches on the three goals of multimedia instructional design that each of the principles will help support.

Takahashi shares how he uses Mayer’s principle of high embodiment and others to provide students with an experience that helps improve learning and retention. From creating a PowerPoint to making instructional videos, these principles can help faculty craft an impactful and lasting learning experience for students.
