Abstract

The movement toward utilising multimedia learning environments in teaching has increased dramatically in recent years.  This chapter reports on current research trends relevant to the development of these environments. Specifically analyzing issues related to designing for an ever increasing multiliterate clientele. It highlights the use of multiple representations and investigates some cognitive constraints present when displaying this information.  Lastly, when learners are given a level of choice in accessing materials they may be further empowered in their knowledge acquisition. An understanding of these basic concepts will play an important role in our approach to Instructional Design. Therefore a set of recommendations is made for the design of these materials.
