Application of Multimedia Principles: Post Graduate Students’ Experience


This study was an empirical survey that used the survey design on a random sample of 120 (one hundred and twenty) doctoral students of the University of Port Harcourt, from two given sessions.  The instrument consisted of a 31-item Multimedia questionnaire divided into seven (7) sections.  This instrument met the indices of both content validity and reliability.  Some of the findings of the study were: texts still dominate most PowerPoint presentations; there is obvious difficulty in labeling complex graphics as such lines could intersect; occasional non reference to projected slides perhaps due to time factor, reading from slides in some cases; and the formal rather than conversational style of presentation, amongst other.  The recommendations made were strictly tied to these major findings.
