Abstract

Living in the information age has increased the complexity of our forms of communication, especially in education. Computer-controlled combinations of text, graphics, sound, photographs, film, and other types of media have surrounded our lives, thereby transforming the traditional educational process. In spite of the allurement of these sophisticated, modern communication systems; laserdiscs, videofiles, CD-ROMs, etc., these materials enhance, rather than replace, the traditional teaching style. Nonetheless, educators are challenged with creating innovative contexts for learning that expand the students' ability to recall and comprehend complex subjects in a competitive, media-communication environment. There are two, major categories of multimedia; non-linear or interactive and linear. Both utilize similar elements: text, graphics, animation, sound, and video. Video production is considered linear multimedia. This research measures the students' ability to recall and comprehend complex subjects utilizing linear multimedia and its benefits.
