Principles for the Best E-Learning
One of the early gurus of e-learning, Prof. Richard E. Mayer, defined the principles of great e-learning - which are valid to this day:
Multimedia Principle - Use words and graphics rather than words alone
Modality Principle - Present words as audio narration rather than on-screen text
Contiguity Principle - Synchronize spoken words with corresponding graphics
Modality Principle - Audio Narration Superior to On-Screen Text
Narrated e-learning brings classroom teaching to the computer. It could be a recorded video of a lecture or an animated presentation to which a lecturer's audio track has been recorded, added and synced.
There are many reasons why narrated e-learning is better than text-based e-learning.
Visual overload - In text-based e-learning, it is difficult to read text and view graphics at the same time.
More content - The narration delivers much more content. A two minute slide can have 300 spoken words but not more than 50 words of readable text.
Captures attention - The narrator's voice captures the learner's attention, sets a pace and motivates learning.
Better understanding - The narrator uses phrasing and articulation in their speech to bring out the exact meaning of the material in a way that text cannot do.
Problem: Because of time and cost constraints of voice recording many companies opt to skip the Modality principle and settle for text-based e-learning. :-(
The Solution: Speech-Over
Speech-Over overcomes the constraints of time and cost of voice recording in narrated e-learning by using TTS to create and update a narrator's voice track more quickly and inexpensively than by recording. :-)
