Multimedia in Learning and the Multigenerational Learner
Abstract: There are many challenges to instructing multigenerational groups with multimedia. Each generation has different values, experiences, learning preferences, and communication styles. This literature review will review the different types of adult learners, how they have different attitudes and goals to learning and how they affect how multimedia should be included in learning and teaching. The literature review will describe the different multigenerational learners, their values, and their attributes in designing multimedia for learning. Factors to be considered in course design for the multigeneration learner will be discussed. The literature review concludes with how to improve learning with multimedia.
