Didactical usage of media

  • Present an appropriate amount of media. It is not only unfavourable to use too little media but also to use too much:
    • With too little media the case will lose clearness and learning effect.
    • Too much media will overload a case and distract the learner from the central theme.
  • Use media in regard to the defined learning objectives. An example: If you want the learner to be able to detect a heart attack in an ECG it is necessary to insert an ECG.
  • It has a good learning effect to embed media into a question.
  • Offer a text alternative when you present videos or audios. This gives the opportunity to get the content even when the media can not be viewed or heard (e.g. because of a technical problem).
