Abstract

Learning is a process of active engagement with experience. It is what people do when they want to make sense of the world. It may involve an increase in skills, knowledge, understanding, values and the capacity to reflect. Effective learning also leads to change, development and a desire to learn more. // Learning occurs in the interplay between expectation and experience as Kolb (1984) suggests, and is an intellectual process of constructing knowledge, i.e. acquiring, processing, assimilating, and integrating information and ideas through constructive socio-cultural interaction. It is sustained by mental stimulation, and encouraged by the proper environment. // For many students, learning has been dependent on time, place and is fundamentally teacheroriented. The flexibility of such a learning environment is restricted, and the essence of multimedia learning which anchors on student-centred strategy remains a paradigm untouched. Unfortunately, ‘technologies are too often used as substitute teachers that deliver information to learners rather than as learning tools that support the active learning process” (Kiili, 2005). // Paper ID 598
