Abstract

After creating interactive multimedia videos that accounted for the shortcomings of the standard video, in addition to providing a niche for every learning style, researchers surveyed class sections and individual participants to determine if the interactive multimedia videos enhanced their learning experience. As hypothesized, the interactive multimedia videos did indeed improve student engagement, while enhancing the amount that they learned in a shorter time span and their overall learning experience. After having observed firsthand the use of video as a learning tool in the classroom, namely the biology lab, this Interactive Qualifying Project investigates the learning enhancement proffered by a more robust interactive multimedia model.
