A Multicenter Study of Students' Sensitivity to Screen-Update Delay
Walsh, Vonda K.; Bush, H. Francis; Squire, James C.; Sullivan, Gerald A.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v4 n6 p7-14 Jun 2011
In a climate of shrinking educational budgets, online learning courses offer many advantages; however there are several possible problems associated with electronic learning. There may be problems associated with learning style preferences, student apathy, instructional support, accessibility, and problems with technology. This paper examines a technological problem associated with the effects of screen-update-delay and student enjoyment, student self-reported comprehension, and student objective comprehension. In particular, this paper attempts to identify the point at which longer screen updates will be detrimental to the student's enjoyment and/or have a significant negative impact on the student's self-reported comprehension and retention of material.
