The purpose of this study was to investigate student satisfaction with multimedia modules provided and their perceptions of scaffolding strategies used in multimedia modules to support student-centered learning. Sixteen students enrolled in one hybrid and three online business courses participated in the study. The results showed that most of the participates were satisfied with the scaffolds embedded in multimedia modules and agreed with their helpfulness to student-centered learning. Several suggestions were made in the conclusion for helping instructors to design better multimedia modules with scaffolds.
