Abstract

In this paper, the effects of using interactive text for the students with different learning preferences will be discussed. Interactive texts have different characteristics from traditional texts. The examples of interactive text include: graphing tutorials, videos, and other multimedia learning resources, self-assessment tests, note-taking and annotation tool. Some research finds that the embedded multimedia of interactive texts is what makes interactive texts so effective in improving student learning outcome. Interactive texts have different characteristics from traditional texts. Is digital curriculum just a new way to deliver the knowledge from the textbook? Does it provide the students more ways to learn comparing to the traditional textbooks? Moreover, does its design meet more learning needs from the students with different learning preferences? All these will be discussed in this paper.
