Little research into the use of music within online learning environments has been undertaken, despite the wide use of music in various areas of society to influence listeners in different ways. This paper describes a study into the effects of music and animation upon learners in a computer mediated environment. A test was developed in which the learner was allocated one of four groups. Each group watched a presentation with either no music or animation, music only, animation only or music and animation. The initial results indicate that there are significant differences between the four groups in a number of areas, including the time taken to complete the presentation and learner satisfaction.
