The Effects of Graphical Overviews on Knowledge Acquisition in Hypertext


Journal of Computer Assisted Learning Volume 18, Number 2, ISSN 1365-2729 Publisher: Wiley


Describes a study of undergraduates that enhanced a hypertext environment with a graphical overview that represented the basic domain structure and designed the layout so learners were unobtrusively encouraged to follow a sequence of exploration that followed the domain structure. Results indicated that a visual display conveys knowledge in its own right. (Author/LRW)
