Abstract

This presentation discusses the outcomes of a study whose purpose was to investigate a computer-based lesson designed to test the hypothesis that learner performance could be improved by reducing participant's cognitive load. Of particular interest was using animation supported by textual or audio explanations to reduce the strain placed on both sensory memory and working memory. Corporate and institutional educators who use or are thinking of using computer-based instruction will find the report particularly interesting.
