When Learning Is Just a Click Away: Does Simple User Interaction Foster Deeper Understanding of Multimedia Messages?
Mayer, Richard E.; Chandler, Paul
Journal of Educational Psychology, v93 n2 p390-97 Jun 2001

The goal was to determine possible benefits of incorporating a modest amount of computer-user interactivity within a multimedia explanation. Results were consistent with cognitive load theory and a two-stage theory of model construction. (BF)
