Using Special Features in a Multimedia Classroom to Teach Nutrition for Wellness

Web Abstract: 
The multimedia classroom provides an ideal setting for teaching nutrition for wellness at the college level. Such a classroom uses computers, laserdisc players, TVs/VCRs, document cameras, or any combination of these features to present lecture materials. Keypads installed at each seat enable students to respond to multiple-choice questions, and the results are tabulated and displayed for discussion. There is evidence to show that the multimedia classroom may be more effective in delivering lecture material than the traditional classroom for psychology classes.
