Abstract

This paper discusses the use of cognitive constructivist theory of multimedia (CCTM) in designing courseware for e-learning using Microsoft Producer. CCTM advocates for the design of instruction using pictures, videos, audios and words that that tap into the prior experiences of the learner, promote active learning, collaboration, personal autonomy, personal growth and alternative assessment that is aligned with multiple intelligences of learners as espoused by Howard Gardener; Linguistics, Logico-mathematics, Spatial, Musical, Bodily-kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Naturalist. Microsoft Producer promotes the use of this CCTM because it of its capabilities to construct knowledge through words, pictures, animations, videos and audio. This paper further explores the importance of using Microsoft Producer for asynchronous e-learning.
