Paper Title:
An Integrated Multimedia Learning System for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines: RICEM
  Abstract

A cost-effective multimedia learning system, RICEM, for reciprocating internal combustion engines was proposed in this study. This system contained the graphical introduction of engine components, engine structure animation, feedback and assessment based on Mayer’s multimedia learning cognitive theory. Reciprocating internal combustion engines are used all over the world to drive compressors, pumps, electric generators, motor ships and other equipments. We used multimedia software to construct the learning system. An experiment comprising of two groups of 30 participants separately was conduct to test the effectiveness and showed that there was a significant difference between the pre-test and post-test score in the RICEM group, as compared with the control group. This study suggested that a collaborative application appeared to be promising in supporting effective learning of modern technology, by combining the integration of learning theory and multimedia design.
