This post was originally published on the Daily Mindflash blog. Included here is the lead and a link to full post.
Let’s get one thing out of the way right from the start and answer the question, “Should you use audio narration in your e-learning courses?” Ruth Clark, author of E-Learning and the Science of Instruction: Proven Guidelines for Consumers and Designers of Multimedia Learning, answers this question clearly when she recommends that you should have all speech as audio rather than as text on the screen, especially when describing a visual of some kind. Clark offers a wide variety of evidence to support this recommendation in her book, which is a must read for anyone who designs e-learning.
