  1. Hi Doug,
    Nice Vlog on multimedia! I like how you brought up the cognitive load theory. Until this course, I had never really taken that into consideration. It makes sense that utilizing videos for instruction in the flipped classroom model would help students retain the information as they have control in the amount of information taken in at any one time. Great point!
