Abstract

In this study, I investigated the effects of multimedia presentations (MPs) on learning efficiency and information-processing strategy in the context of a learning scenario in which subjects were asked to learn multimedia-based instructions concerned with an assembly task. A 2 (text mode: written/spoken) by 2 (picture mode: static/moving) factorial design was employed. The results showed that spoken texts had a positive effect on learning efficiency. However, this effect seemed to be limited to moving-picture conditions. Moreover, picture mode did not exert an effect on learning efficiency, which indicated that moving pictures were not superior to static pictures in demonstrating the assembly procedures. Nevertheless, information conveyed by moving pictures appeared to be easier understood and remembered when it contained complex actions that could not be clearly depicted by static pictures.
