Learn internationally-recognised principles for multimedia learning to prepare learners for the main or important concepts to come, reduce clutter and redundancy, keep the on-screen text close to and relevant to the associated visuals.

Learn how and when to use signalling to present on-screen text with narration. Learn to write texts for online examples (distributed, step-by-step), practice problems (on-screen text for directions, writing online instructions, while maintaining clutter-free delivery) and, finally, how to write online feedback.
