Important research by a Wilmington University doctoral candidate concludes the use of interactive multimedia tools in online instruction has a positive impact on student engagement.
The author, Dr. Christina Asroff, is WilmU’s multimedia manager, who recently completed her doctoral studies at WilmU. Her article, Improving Student Engagement in Online Learning: A Study on Interactive Multimedia Tools in Higher Education, was published in The Journal of the Instructional Technology Council, a peer-reviewed scholarly journal focused on topics related to academic technology in community colleges, distance and online education, and innovative approaches to delivering higher education.
Her findings support the Online Learning and Educational Technology’s teams’ focus on supporting faculty to use multimedia tools to engage students in online learning. Dr. Asroff will present her article at the upcoming 2021 virtual conference for the Instructional Technology Council, which represents nearly 200 institutions that offer distance education courses to their students in the United States, Canada, and around the world.
