Obviously, different people learn differently. Personally, I retain what I
see (including what I read) much better than what I hear for equivalent
amounts of effort and concentration. I also find it much easier to
concentrate on visuals for a longer period of time than on auditory
information. For you, the situation is reversed. I am sure that you had an
easier time in lecture courses than I did. If the course didn't have a good
text, I was in trouble.
I believe that much of your critisism concerning multi-media is well
deserved. Like any "in" concept, it has become circusfied. On the other hand
when properly used, multi-media has many advantages:
reaching students with different learning styles
reaching students with disabilities
providing variety in the school day
