Multimedia is used with the intention

  • to increase motivation,
  • to support visual learning (often a picture can say more than a long describing text),
  • to realise specific learning targets (e.g. when you want to train the learnerĀ“s ear to improve auscultation skills an audio of an auscultation is essential).


Choose media in concern of the following criteria:

  • high grade quality
  • meaningful demonstration
  • as realistic as possible

It can also be reasonable to insert media that does not contain specific information but simply illustrates the patient story or the story board. This can help to better imagine the situation and increase motivation.
