Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

An experiment was conducted to examine how dual-coding theory would operate in a
computer-mediated learning task. The findings confirmed that modality can change the outcome
predicted by dual-coding theory. Participants who received narration performed as well as
participants who received on-line text. Participants who did not receive the text devised an ad hoc
mechanism (taking notes) for adjusting the level of information available to them.
