Thanks to the cognitive theory of multimedia learning (Mayer, 2009), we know that learning is an active process of filtering, selecting, organizing and integrating information. According to this theory, humans have two separate information processing channels for verbal and pictorial information.Presenting a piece of information in both channels helps learners construct connections between two forms of mental representations: verbal and non-verbal. However, all of the existing e-learning tools present the information via only verbal (audio/video) channels or non-verbal (text) channels.
This is why we have created MySmartLab, the only tool that integrates different types of media like images, audio, video, animation, text and graphics into online courses that synchronise with your video.
How does it work?
It’s pretty simple, really.
Students learn better when corresponding words and pictures are presented simultaneously rather than successively in courses, (temporal contiguity principle). That’s the reason why MySmartLab developed the smartboxes, to integrate and synchronise any type of medias in your videos. Whether you’re an educational institution, a large company or a public organisation – we’ve got it covered: you can asses your learners and deliver certifications in a fun way. By using gamification principles in our online quiz creator, we ensure your learner’s success by making online training fun, entertaining and engaging.
