Design of Hypermedia Using a Learner-Centered Model

Throughout the past 20 years, research literature in nursing has discussed and documented that students learn theoretical and clinical knowledge at least as well when taught by methods that utilize computer technologies. With interactive hypermedia technology that incorporates the visual, textual, and acoustic domains, learning becomes an active process unlocking the potential of matching teaching strategies to individual's learning style. Hypermedia assisted instruction (HAI), integrated use of multimedia with structured links, is embraced as a tool to improve learning. This paper describes the development of an instructional CD-ROM, Cardiovascular Anatomy and Physiology, with the objective of fostering critical thinking and decision making skills in nursing students in a non-threatening environment. The design of the CD-ROM is clearly identified by the instructional events proposed by Gagne (1985). These nine events, classic instructional design principles, are: (1) gaining attention; (2) informing the learner of the objectives; (3) stimulating recall of prerequisite skills; (4) presenting the stimulus material; (5) guiding learning (6) eliciting performance; (7) providing informative feedback; (8) assessing performance; and (9) enhancing retention and transfer. Throughout the CD, the learner encounters an interactive, self-pacing, multi sensory learning experience. This non-linear multidimensional design accommodates various learning styles while maintaining participants=interest during the learning process. With a use of the hypermedia there is a shift in pedagogy. Teachers are relinquishing control with what is read and how much depth, creating Alearner controlled@ environments in navigating through the interactive multimedia content. The user has the opportunity to select the learning pathways appropriate to his or her knowledge level and interest. The relationship between teaching and learning is important to enhance development of effective teaching strategies, students using the CD-ROM will have the opportunity to participate in research. Information that can identify the benefits of the integration of interactive, multimedia software as a learning tool is of interest to nursing education. The student will benefit with the identification of important barriers to, and facilitators of, participation in learning. By capitalizing on the versatility of new technologies, instructional programs that allow for interactivity with learners may be created by the active involvement of nursing educators with knowledge expertise. Using these new technologies, faculty become the facilitator and resource personnel, encouraging participant's critical thinking and decision-making skills.
