Cognitive Load While Learning with a Graphical Computer Interface


Journal of Computer Assisted Learning Volume 16, Number 4, ISSN 1365-2729 Publisher: Wiley


Discusses cognitive load theory and describes a study that investigated how undergraduates learned the basic commands of a CAD (computer-assisted design) software package using manuals with different formats of presentation of instructions. Results show that graphical interface, using a manual that juxtaposes text and screen images, was most effective. (Author/LRW)
