The presentation will discuss the pilot design, implementation, and evaluation of multimedia worked examples, which were developed to help students’ understanding and application of physical principles and analytical procedures in the domain of fluid mechanics. Multimedia worked examples were built using a Tablet PC and Camtasia video editing software, and integrated with the homework problems by breaking the continuous multimedia presentation into separate parts to facilitate analogical reasoning and schema development. To promote active construction of meaning and to facilitate understanding of principles, worked examples were also enhanced with self-explanation prompts. Worked examples were delivered online as a part of the homework assignment using a course management system. The presentation will also provide recommendations for implementation of multimedia learning in the classroom.
