    Abstract

    With technological improvements and widespread computer usage, the need for user-friendly humanmachine interfaces is steadily increasing. Computer graphics and audio provide a colourful world of visual and auditory experiences; nevertheless, tutoring systems have traditionally used keyboard and mouse almost exclusively, limiting significantly the input mechanisms available to content designers. Multisensory learning is beneficial for learning a new language (Birsh, 1999), and through increasing the affordances of interaction, learning scenarios can be significantly augmented.
