Abstract

The performance of a teacher in the exposition of a subject is a rich experience that can be captured and transformed into a corresponding multimedia learning object, given the multimodal and multi-device nature of the presentation. Using as a starting point an interactive multimedia object which is an electronic version of a problem solving lecture recorded by the teacher, in this paper we report how a group of students interacts with one multimedia learning object composed of synchronized videos, audio, images and context information. The qualitative analysis of the data allows the teacher to infer useful information not only for refining the lecture content but also for improving its presentation. The case study presented illustrates how a similar analysis can be performed by other instructors with respect to their own lectures, and demonstrates both the power of capturing the multimodal and multi-device nature of the original presentation, and the utility of logging the student-multimedia learning object interaction.
