A Split-Attention Effect in Multimedia Learning: Evidence for Dual Processing Systems in Working Memory
ARTICLE

,

Journal of Educational Psychology Volume 90, Number 2, ISSN 0022-0663

Abstract

Multimedia learners (n=146 college students) were able to integrate words and computer-presented pictures more easily when the words were presented aurally rather than visually. This split-attention effect is consistent with a dual-processing model of working memory. (SLD)
