Dual Coding Theory and Computer Education: Some Media Experiments to Examine the Effects of Different Media on Learning
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2002 (2002) pp. 42–47
Dual Coding theory (Paivio) has quite specific predictions about how information in different media is stored manipulated and recalled. Different combinations of media are expected to have significant effects upon the recall and retention of...
The MEDIA Project: An investigation into the effects computer-based media has on the learning outcomes of individuals who have dyslexia
EdMedia: World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2003 (2003) pp. 2689–2694
The research project MEDIA began in November 2002 and is still ongoing. This paper is therefore a summary of the aims and objectives of the research and an explanation of the work in progress. The main aim of the research is to investigate, through...

Developing a large web-based learning environment - can a style guide help learning material developers?
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2002 (2002) pp. 478–483
An application specific style guide was produced for a large web-based multi-media and hyper-media learning project. It was introduced to 15 different sets of developers at Universities in disparate locations to promote consistency and good HCI...

World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2004 (2004) pp. 4309–4316
In recent years, Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) has become more widely available. One of its advantages over conventional radio is in its ability to broadcast visual information in addition to auditory information. One issue is how best to use...
An investigation into the effects that digital media can have on the learning outcomes of individuals who have dyslexia
Computers & Education Vol. 47, No. 1 (August 2006) pp. 74–93
The effects that media can have on task performance have been greatly debated over the years. Whilst agreement has begun to emerge on the effects media have on cognitive performance, little is understood about the relationship between such media...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2002 (2002) pp. 111–116
This paper reports initial results from a study which investigated if different media combinations could be shown to improve students' understanding of computer-based learning materials and to determine whether student learning style affected...
