At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Participants will explore & apply techniques and strategies to foster deeper learning using multimedia and graphics.
This course will include an overview of techniques and strategies that research has shown to improve learning outcomes using multimedia and graphics for learning. The role of graphics will be explored to move from the use of graphics from decoration to those that truly foster deeper learning. We will also discuss classroom delivery of multimedia. Participants will apply these concepts to improve and design instructional multimedia.
This course is not on how to create multimedia. Participants should use multimedia they already know how to use.
posted message: Two of my goals for this course is to learn how to add sound in multimedia or use multimedia that has sound and to learn how to animate simple images. The sound might include recording myself singing or playing guitar. As a language teacher that would be very useful in teaching pronunciation as well as bringing live culture to the class (since my class is all over the world and only connected to me by internet.

posted message: Creating this class has already been a learning experience for me. I generally employ multimedia in live presentations in the classroom and screencasts to extend and reinforce learning that occurs in school.
I thought it would be a good idea to use multimedia in a course about multimedia. I'm doing this using presentation software and inserting audio clips in each slide, then exporting the presentation as a video. It is more time consuming than I had anticipated, but I hope it helps improve learning and models the ideas that we will be discussing!
I look forward to your feedback in an area in which I am stepping out of my comfort zone!
