Multimedia and Interface Design

In the design of interactive learning environments, the development of an effective interface and the choice of appropriate media requires not only an understanding of the knowledge domain but also the most effective way to represent this to learners. This subject will develop students understanding of the design and development of interactive multimedia learning resources and environments through a focus on selecting and combining media appropriately for effective learning.


This subject explores the role of effective visualisation and screen design and the ways it can facilitate understanding by learners/users of software. Topics focus on how multiple media can be combined to enhance understanding, how visual design and metaphor support reduction in cognitive load, how effective electronic performance support systems support work through complex tasks and how usability can be investigated.


Students will have an opportunity to design their own multimedia treatments for concepts of their choice and, using the software tools available, develop these into learning resources.
