Hwang, Isabel; Tam, Michael; Lam, Shun Leung; Lam, Paul – Electronic Journal of e-Learning, 2012
Dynamic concepts are difficult to explain in traditional media such as still slides. Animations seem to offer the advantage of delivering better representations of these concepts. Compared with static images and text, animations can present procedural information (e.g. biochemical reaction steps, physiological activities) more explicitly as they…
