Abstract

The study employed a 2 (university campus) x 3 (treatment groups) x 2 (time) factorial design with random assignment to examine the use of multimedia advance organizers before an activity that involved locating and synthesizing information at the complex educational website, A Teachers' Guide to the Holocaust (http://fcit.usf.edu/holocaust). Most participants were undergraduate Education majors between the ages of 18 and 21 at two large, state universities. The results indicated no signifi cant differences between advance organizer treatment groups and a control group with no advance organizers. Rationale, method, results, and suggestions for future studies are provided.
