Abstract

Abstract: When asked to select the strategy that is the most effective combination of image, text, and audio for learner transfer, about 70% of survey respondents (mostly instructional designers) selected the approach that seems to be in direct conflict with the results of published studies. This apparent conflict indicates that there may be gaps or lags between research and current practice regarding the effectiveness of e-learning strategies. This paper will briefly describe commonly used e-learning approaches for image, text, and audio and then compare the opinions of over 100 e-learning developers against the research on the effectiveness for the same approaches. Key factors that contribute to the appearance of a gap between opinions, practice, and research are highlighted. Input is also included from thought-leaders and authors Karl Kapp, Ruth Clark, and Clark Quinn.
