The impact of multimedia tutorial on students' learning experience in the public authority for applied education and trainng, Kuwait
This paper presents the results of an experiment carried out on a random sample of 34 students from The Public Authority for Applied Education And Training (PAAET), Kuwait Higher Education. The experiment aimed at evaluating the impact of a Multimedia Tutorial Programme on students' learning experience. Two methods of information delivery were investigated: traditional lecturing method and the multimedia method. The results, which have been analysed, show that students were motivated and satisfied with the multimedia approach comparing with the traditional way. However, it is difficult to precisely evaluate students' retention of knowledge in this experiment. The researcher suggests the need for further studies which might present different and various results depending on type of learning materials, students' background, usability of the multimedia programme, and period of time undertaken in the experiment.
