Abstract

Science educators have often struggled with means to effectively present content in order to optimize student understanding of difficult concepts. The paper will examine the use of online tutorials and other educational technologies in helping students learn fundamental concepts and processes in the area of psychology and neuroscience. The investigation is based on a wide body of research that has identified the value of visualization, graphics, and digital animations in learning. It has been demonstrated that the use of well-designed visual tools can help learners digest large amounts of information in relatively brief time periods, and learners can construct a personal visualization of a specific process or concept. The use of online interactive tools has potential to encourage more active learning and increase learner motivation, acting to ultimately enhance student learning outcomes.
