Merging neuroscience and education research to personalize multimedia and online learning - University of Florida

The University of Florida education technology researcher Pavlo “Pasha” Antonenko has never been afraid to take risks and go against convention. His pioneering spirit emerged in the 1990s in his Ukraine homeland, where personal computers were scarce and there was no internet connection. Today you’ll find him leading groundbreaking studies on a radical new approach for advancing and personalizing the still-fledgling field of online learning. “Virtually all research on multimedia learning methods has been performed on high-achieving students at elite research-intensive universities, where studies like this usually occur. We are evaluating these methods with more diverse student populations and those with special needs,” Antonenko says.
