Reflection – Week 6

This week we covered many areas of how to show off our site and make it look and sound better. Also the many different ways to display text and images. Although I have found out that the free version of WordPress does not allow for font size changes etc.  We also covered the best way to import images and videos. We discussed Mayer and his cognitive theory of multimedia of learning. We also discussed Mayer’s hierarchy modell of cognitive load as he suggests there are:

Essential Processing(intrinsic)
Extraneous Processing(extrinsic)
Generative Processing(germane cognitive load)

Mayer also has 12 Multimedia Principles to creating a very effective site.
