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 significant differences between advance organizer treatment groups and a control group with no advance organizers. Rationale, method, results, and suggestions for future studies are provided.
