Animations Need Narrations: An Experimental Test of a Dual-Coding Hypothesis.
Mayer, Richard E.; Anderson, Richard B.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v83 n4 p484-90 Dec 1991
In two experiments, 102 mechanically naive college students viewed an animation on bicycle tire pump operation with a verbal description before or during the animation or without description. Improved performance of those receiving description during the animation supports a dual-coding hypothesis of connections between visual and verbal stimuli. (SLD)
