The effective use of interactive multimedia in education: Design and implementation issues
Paper by Jan Herrington and Ron Oliver
Edith Cowan University (Australia), 1997

"This paper will examine the design of interactive multimedia from the perspective of situated learning, and discuss the critical characteristics that are present in learning environments designed using this theory. The role of the teacher, and the importance of allowing for collaboration between teachers and learners will be discussed. The paper will argue that even the best interactive multimedia programs can be used ineffectively without thought to appropriate conditions of implementation in the classroom."
