Abstract

Technological development has provided for new methods of instruction. Specifically, the audio component of multime-dia can be used to bring sound, speech, and music to com-puter applications where the learner engages in interactive learning. Costs of hardware have been significantly reduced to provide many more authors of multimedia instruction this capability. However, there is not a significant amount of quantitative study on the why, when, and where audio should or should not be used. In this study, the authors investigated the effects of adding an audio instruction component to an existing multimedia computer lab exercise containing text and graphics. The experiment was conducted at a Midwest-ern University with students enrolled in the undergraduate course, Structured Problem Solving Using the Computer. Students in the treatment group were asked to listen to audio instruction in addition to using a laboratory manual to com-plete an exercise.
