Mind the Gap: Learner-Centred Multimedia Design

Author Mark Dowling
Abstract Motivated to keep pace with technological developments, many Higher Education institutions are in the process of implementing a variety of eLearning programs.

eLearning program implementation can be technology centred or learner centred. This report views eLearning through a learner centred lens. Learner centred approaches begin with an understanding of how the human mind works and asks, 'How can we adapt multimedia to enhance learning?' Technology should complement human abilities. A technology centred approach results in solutions that can often interfere and confuse learning. The term Multimedia means different things to different people.
