Oct 25, 2018 3:30pm ‐ Oct 25, 2018 4:30pm


Description

Multimedia refers to multiple forms of media (e.g., text, images, and audio). Multimedia learning environments are commonplace in schools and colleges. However, it is currently unknown how students with reading deficits compare with their peers in these multimedia instructional environments. In this presentation, we review our findings from three studies investigating how multimedia formats affect the learning of students with reading deficits and conclude with recommendations for improving students’ learning in multimedia environments.
