Effects of Multimedia Characteristics on Novice CAD Learners' Practice Performance
Mahdjoubi, Lamine, A-Rahman, Mosa Allafi, Architectural Engineering and Design Management
Based on the assumption that providing information using multiple modalities improves learners' performance, the teaching of computer-aided design (CAD) in the built environment is increasingly shifting from printed material to a multimedia approach. Yet, the evidence base suggests that presenting information by using multiple modalities does not always enhance learning. This paper reports on an empirically based study that sought to determine under which conditions architectural engineering students benefit most from multimedia CAD learning. It investigated the effects of multimedia on novice CAD learners' practice performance (time and accuracy). One hundred and one …
