A conceptual architecture for interactive educational multimedia

Pahl, Claus orcid logoORCID: 0000-0002-9049-212X (2007) A conceptual architecture for interactive educational multimedia. In: Tomei, L., (ed.) Online and Distance Learning: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools and Applications. IGI Global, pp. 733-748. ISBN 9781599049359

Learning is more than knowledge acquisition; it often involves the active participation of the learner in a variety of knowledge- and skills-based learning and training activities. Interactive multimedia technology can support the variety of interaction channels and languages required to facilitate interactive learning and teaching. A conceptual architecture for interactive educational multimedia can support the development of such multimedia systems. Such an architecture needs to embed multimedia technology into a coherent educational context. A framework based on an integrated interaction model is needed to capture learning and training activities in an online setting from an educational perspective, to describe them in the human-computer context, and to integrate them with mechanisms and principles of multimedia interaction.
