A study examining the impact of computer@-based @*examples and their availability on learning (1999) pp. 1–179
This study was designed to examine the effectiveness of a specific type of computer-based worked example, one designed to encourage students to study the example in an optimal fashion by: (1) incorporating visually isolated and labeled subgoals, a...
Journal of Educational Psychology Vol. 94, No. 2 (2002) pp. 416–27
Aims to optimize computer-based learning environment designed to teach how to solve word problems by incorporating an animated pedagogical agent. The agent delivered instructional explanations either textually or aurally, while simultaneously using...
Narration in Multimedia Learning Environments: Exploring the Impact of Voice Origin, Gender, and Presentation mode
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 980–985

Information Technology and Innovation Foundation 2010 (October 2010)
For many years, debates over telecommunications network policy were marked by a relative lack of partisan and ideological conflict. In the last decade, this has changed markedly. Today, debates over a whole set of issues, including broadband...
Interactive Learning Environments Vol. 10, No. 2 (2002) pp. 105–19
Discusses research on different types of computer-based learning environments that indirectly foster self-explanations, and discusses ways of leveraging new computer and video technologies to enhance these environments by representing problem...
Computers & Education Vol. 49, No. 3 (November 2007) pp. 677–690
Research suggests that students learn better when studying a picture coupled with narration rather than on-screen text in a computer-based multimedia learning environment. Moreover, combining narration with the visual presence of an animated...
Computers & Education Vol. 56, No. 3 (April 2011) pp. 650–658
The purpose of the study is to investigate the potential benefits of using animation, visual cueing, and their combination in a multimedia environment designed to support learners' acquisition and retention of scientific concepts and processes....
Interactive Example-Based Learning Environments: Using Interactive Elements to Encourage Effective Processing of Worked Examples
Educational Psychology Review Vol. 19, No. 3 (September 2007) pp. 375–386
This review describes parts of our research program on example-based learning that relates to recent efforts to incorporate interactive elements into learning environments designed to support learning from worked-out examples. Since most learners...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 954–962
This experiment examined which type, or a combination, of attention-gaining and attention-directing techniques foster learning in a multimedia learning environment. One hundred and sixty-nine participants were randomly assigned to the cells of a 3 x ...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2012 (Jun 26, 2012) pp. 2884–2887
The advent of social media has spawned a surge of open-source, user-created intelligence available through online media such as blogs and social networks. Since the number of people participating in social media activities seems to increase on a...
Exploring the Presentation and Format of Help in a Computer-Based Electrical Engineering Learning Environment
Annual Meeting of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology 2004 (October 2005)
This study investigated whether it was more beneficial to provide the learners in computer-based learning environments access to on demand (self-regulated) help after they committed an error in problem solving or for the learning environment to...
American Journal of Health Behavior Vol. 26, No. 6 (2002) pp. 494–503
Discusses how health education researchers can use the Internet to both intervene in health behavior and evaluate the effects of interventions (eHealth), describing the potential of computer technology for behavior interventions via message...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (Mar 05, 2012) pp. 4814–4817
The advent of social media has spawned a surge of open-source, user-created intelligence available through online media such as blogs, wikis and social networks. Since the number of people participating in social media activities seems to increase...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2013 (Jun 24, 2013) pp. 1437–1445
Critviz is an experimental web-based tool created to support peer critique in large classrooms. Critique sessions are an effective tool to use in the classrooms where students’ work is not so clearly “right” or “wrong” and when students need...
Contemporary Educational Psychology Vol. 30, No. 1 (January 2005) pp. 117–139
Consistent with social agency theory, we hypothesized that learners who studied a set of worked-out examples involving proportional reasoning narrated by an animated agent with a human voice would perform better on near and far transfer tests and...
Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 32, No. 1 (January 2004) pp. 59–82
In order to facilitate the transition from learning from worked examples in earlier stages of skill acquisition to problem solving in later stages, it is effective to successively fade out worked solution steps--in comparison to the traditional...
Encountering the Expertise Reversal Effect with a Computer-Based Environment on Electrical Circuit Analysis
Learning and Instruction Vol. 16, No. 2 (April 2006) pp. 92–103
This study examined the effectiveness of a computer-based environment employing three example-based instructional procedures (example-problem, problem-example, and fading) to teach series and parallel electrical circuit analysis to learners...
British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 47, No. 5 (September 2016) pp. 893–905
US colleges presently face an academic plight; thousands of high school graduates are performing below the expected ability for college-level mathematics. This paper describes an innovative approach intended to improve the mathematics performance of ...
Does the Type and Degree of Animation Present in a Visual Representation Accompanying Narration in a Multimedia Environment Impact Learning?
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2009 (Jun 22, 2009) pp. 726–734
This experiment investigated whether a learning environment enhanced by a pedagogical agent displaying a variety of social cues decrease the perception of cognitive load/difficulty and ultimately results in superior learning. The experiment also...
