Explanimations are ideal to explain a concept. An explanimation not only presents the facts, but also explains them. elearning experiences are created first and the explanimation is added as an overlay to help explain the course concepts. The explanimation’s body parts can be animated to point towards the main concepts.
The learner is actively engaged in the elearning experience if they are looking, listening and thinking at the same time. This is because the learner is actively constructing new knowledge as they are exposed to various types of information represented by different stimuli. Learning is achieved because the learner is making their own mental connections between the different pieces of information.
