Multimedia Instructional Message (MIM) and Simulation-Aided Learning: A Conceptual Framework

Mohd Syahrizad Elias and Ahmad Zamzuri Mohamad Ali

Abstract—Simulation-aided learning has the ability to attract the attention and interest of students to learn. However, the effectiveness of simulation-aided learning requires adequate instructional support to sufficiently achieve the learning objectives. Multimedia Instructional Message (MIM) serves as an instructional support in building this meaningful learning, especially in helping the exploration of complex simulation application, abstract learning content delivery and delivery of learning that requires a combination of skills. Effective MIM strategy depends on the selection of images and the medium of communication used in the delivery of teaching and learning strategies. The effectiveness of the image depends on the form of the graphics used either printed static graphics, digital static graphics or animated digital graphics apart from other factors such as learning styles and students’ prior knowledge. Taking these into consideration, this paper proposes a conceptual framework for research related to simulation-aided learning.

Index Terms—Animation, graphics, instructional, learning style, multimedia instructional message (MIM), simulation.
