Abstract

Previous research has indicated that without adequate background knowledge, statistical learners can miss important details and build up more misconceptions through interactive simulations. To rectify this situation, two types of multimedia with limited learner control were used in a Web-based statistical course: (1) linear digital movies; and (2) modularized slide shows. Participants were 36 graduate and undergraduate students. It was hypothesized that the instructional effectiveness in terms of correct understanding would be tied to the conceptual and procedural knowledge nature. An interaction effect of the media type and knowledge nature type was expected. Analysis of variance did not yield a significant result for the interaction effect but did yield a significant result for both media and knowledge effects. Although the movie approach did not yield benefits in terms of conceptual or procedural learning, benefits might have been inhibited by problems in the navigational interface.
