Abstract

This paper describes the Multimedia Educational Pills (MEPs) model. MEPs are highly concentrated courses, designed to address a topic through multiple representations, following a recursive, non-cumulative, logic, as pointed out by the Cognitive Flexibility Theory (CFT) methodology. MEPs have been designed to meet the educational challenges posed by the transition from an industrial to an information age. They focus on promoting the capacity to deal with uncertainties and solve problems in an adaptive way. Variety is the key to the architecture and the main benefit of applying MEPS. In fact, MEPS are made up of multiple resources. Each learning object has its own particular shape, perspective and conceptual dimension. In addition, the MEPS are designed to be used in multiple ways, such as e-learning, classroom, blended learning, and to be accessible on multiple devices. MEPs can support multiple teaching strategies (such as self-training, cooperative learning) and multiple learning architectures. In particular MEPs - used before or as follow-up – can integrate and improve traditional classrooms. Finally MEPs can be used in support of coaching paths or in support of outdoor training paths.
