Abstract:

This thesis examines various literature to help understand the effects that different types of media, when used alone or in combination, have on the learning process and proposes a design guideline for a hypermedia multimedia system for the Navys 76mm gun. Additionally, hypermediamultimedia user interface guidelines and screen design principles are addressed as well as a comparison of three existing military media selection models. Research suggests that capabilities of a particular medium, in conjunction with methods that take advantage of these capabilities, interact with and influence the ways learners represent and process information and may result in more or different learning when one medium is compared to another for certain learners and tasks Kozma, 1991, p. 179.
