Artifact Introduction: During our fifth week in multimedia class, we were to research the Coherence Principle of Multimedia Learning by reading our text and additional articles. We were to use the information that we acquired to develop a written analysis of the Coherence Principle to develop our own opinions and gain a true understanding of it. We were to do this by relating it to our own positive and negative experiences. We were also to identify and explain the relationship between this principle and other Multimedia Learning Principles and cognitive psychology that we’ve learned about.
Reflection of Learning/Standard Connection: The coherence principle states that individuals learn better when extraneous text, graphics, and audio are not used. In this paper, I have explored this principle in depth and connected it to previous learning and experiences in order to provide a complete and thorough analysis.
- AECT Standard 1.3 Assessing/Evaluating: For this analysis I had to assess and evaluate the coherence principle and it’s integration in multimedia and instructional materials.
