Topical Collection "Multimedia-Based Digital Learning"
A topical collection in Digital (ISSN 2673-6470).Viewed by 2772
With the rise of digital in all areas of our lives, we are seeing an increase in the use of digital services in learning. A variety of media, such as text, symbols, images, pictures, audio, video, and animations, have been designed to assist digital learning with tools that can be used in presentations, classroom or laboratory learning, simulations, e-learning, computer games, and virtual reality; thereby, students/ employees can learn basic knowledge and visualization skills through the Internet. The use of ICT in teaching transforms the learning environment from teacher-centred to learner-centred; the use of learning tools and applications provides students a stimulating experience so that they attain a better understanding of concepts.
Digital multimedia technology brings about improvement in teaching and learning. However, there are a number of limitations in this technology, such as unfriendly programming or user interface, single target group and area, lack of required knowledge and skill, and high cost of maintenance among others. It is important to explore advanced mobile technology with several multimedia components to enhance teaching and learning processes across a diverse group of learners.
In this Topic Collection, we will research all aspects of the area of multimedia technologies in digital learning, from mobile applications for teaching and learning to multimedia learning environments and virtual laboratories. Submissions should describe original, significant, and unpublished work. Possible topics include but are not limited to:
- Advanced classroom technologies
- Animation and 3D applications
- Blended learning
- Collaborative learning
- Collaborative virtual environments
- Computational thinking
- Curriculum content design and development
- Distance education
- Educational games and software
