The use of graphics and multimedia are highly regarded for their effects on student motivation. Clark (2008) suggested that better learning outcomes could be achieved by stimulating interest, improving note taking, and promoting higher-order thinking through the use of information and communication technologies. The context of training environments supported by presentation software and computer-based multimedia depend heavily on sight and sound (Williams & Stimatz, 2005). This dependence warrants the need for effective graphic design and multimedia utilization in Web-based learning environments. Moreno and Valdez (2005) concluded that multimedia environments have the potential of promoting meaningful learning by varying both the number of representations provided to students and the degree of student interactivity. However, the improper use of graphic and multimedia can cause Cognitive Overload that can hinder learning due to the inability of the brain to process large amounts of information.
Video is a form of multimedia that conveys information through two simultaneous sensory channels: aural and visual (Cruse, 2008). This makes video the perfect media for enhancing instruction for students.

Various tools such as the Jing Project, Camtasia Studio, Captivate, Wink and Microsoft Photo Story 3 can be used to create digital projects that can be shared over the Internet. These applications provide a seamless platform for digital video production and publication.
