Research into the effectiveness of new learning technologies is needed. However education research is complex and challenging. In this paper we explore problems associated with different methodological approaches. In particular the value of controlled experiments in this context will be analysed and the use of interpretativist approaches to illuminate particular situations discussed. This is based on a critical reflection of our own experiences of doing educational research into student learning with interactive multimedia. These reflections will be useful to others embarking on similar projects.
