Abstract

An interesting debate has raged since 1983 when Richard Clark published an article claiming that media was simply a method of instructional delivery and has no effect on learning. Many researchers have submitted rebuttals to Clark’s claim, but Clark remains steadfast in his position. Times have changed since this debate began and computers now enable media to accomplish tasks that no media in history has been capable of, such as providing immediate feedback or simulating real experiences that mimic the performance context. This paper will discuss each side of this debate and then consider how changes in technology have given birth to several innovative media enabled learning environments.
