Promoting Active Learning: The Role of System Structure in Learning from Hypertext

Human-Computer Interaction Volume 13, Number 1, ISSN 0737-0024

Abstract

This study of 72 undergraduates examined whether theories of learning from text may be extended to hypertext and the effectiveness of hypertext on learning. Participants worked with either a highly structured, unstructured, or linear hypertext system. Results indicated that less structured systems promoted more active processing and a deeper level of learning but that hypertext had limited educational benefits. (PEN)
