Abstract

Linking and timing what is to be presented to the learner is particularly important in multimedia educational environ-ments, especially when the same piece of material can be presented to the learner in different media, often more than once. This article addresses the linking and timing attributes of the presentation of learning material in multimedia educa-tional systems by way of a control in teaching strategy selec-tion. The control mechanism is illustrated through the model for teaching strategy selection. The model is based on factors that affect human teachers in their teaching strategy selec-tion, which in turn governs the decision of which piece of material to present, and the timeliness of such. The benefits of the model are demonstrated through ARISTOTLE, a mul-timedia education system in which the model is deployed.
