Screen Design: A Review of Research.
Mukherjee, Prachee; Edmonds, Gerald S.
This paper reviews the literature on screen design used for instructional purposes. The following topics are reviewed: definition of screen design; foundations of screen design; elements of screen design; functions of screen design; screen design research and problems; and criteria for evaluation. Conclusions drawn from this review are: screen design is guided by principles derived from research and common-sense heuristics; the learner is involved in the screen design process after the design is complete; and there is a need to expand the knowledge of how screen elements embedded in instructional courseware actually perform in daily instruction.
