This study investigated whether the use of multi-media technology (including the use of internet links, video and audio clips, computer graphics & pictures, and text information) would improve student understanding and performance on laboratory experiments. Over the course of study it was determined based on student pre-lab scores, actual student time spent in lab, and instructor observations that students showed improvement in understanding of lab objectives, safety information, laboratory techniques, lab efficiency, and practical applications. Post-lab write-ups, extensions, and overall results showed no significant change.
