Abstract

Despite increasing evidence emerging that media combinations in learning material can affect learning outcomes, the potential to incorporate an adaptable multitude of media presentations in e-assessment in order to enhance students performance has been somewhat neglected to date. This paper elaborates on the discussion of the effects that different media combinations in e-learning material can have upon the attainment and retention of information, and, based on present studies, investigates how an adaptable multimodal approach in e-assessment can be beneficial to all students, including those with disabilities.
