Multimedia Learning Principles

I am just two months away from completing my MSc in Instructional Design and Educational Technology. Throughout the degree course I have realised that everything I thought I knew about designing meaningful online learning experience was wrong or at least flawed.

My early iterations of online learning contained jazzy videos with music, animations, text, images, video and voice. Sometimes all at the same time. The quantity of multimedia tools for me, seemed to be better than quality.
