Comparing Student Learning Outcomes in Hypermedia and Analog Assisted Lectures (HAL & AAL).
Bowdish, Bruce; Chauvin, Sheila; Vigh, Sandor
The purpose of this paper is to report the results of a quasi-experimental study of the effects on student achievement resulting from the redesign of an existing anatomy course for a cohort of Occupational Therapy students. This study was based on a design strategy that combined two different instructional technology approaches to teaching and learning in lectures: (1) content-centered, World Wide Web-based hypermedia; and (2) situation-based, stand-alone hypermedia. The digital projection method of hypermedia-assisted lecture materials is described, which uses analog-assisted lecture materials within a conceptual framework incorporating "ecological psychology" and problem situations for learning. Findings are discussed in terms of content selection and presentation design guidelines derived from ecological theories of human learning. Also explored is the usefulness of this study for guiding future enhancements of medical education lecture materials. (AEF)
