Multimedia-Based Learning Tools and Its Scope, Applications for Virtual Learning Environment

Part of the Intelligent Systems Reference Library book series (ISRL,volume 197)

Abstract

The advancement in technology plays vital role in teaching, learning and faculty development. Computer-aided learning media is the usage of computer for presenting the learning materials for better understanding and visualization. The multimedia-based teaching material comprises of text, audio, video, animation and graphics. The multimedia-based interactive teaching material provides ease in understanding and efficient understanding of a course. The multimedia and image processing-based learning techniques gain importance in web-based learning systems for online learning. A set of questions are prepared, and response is collected from faculty and students, and the importance of multimedia-aided tools are analyzed. Based on the questionnaire generated, response is collected and statistical analysis is also done. The statistical analysis by t-test reveals the efficiency of multimedia tools in the teaching and learning process. The web-based learning resources are presently an optional and supplementary for the users; in future, they will be the main course materials. The role of multimedia-based resource is inevitable in interactive teaching and learning. The multimedia-based learning materials help in the efficient achievement of course objective and accomplishment of course outcome. The multimedia-based online learning will be the future generation teaching and learning technique.
