Schrader, P. G.; Lawless, Kimberly; Mayall, Hayley – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2008
When examined across studies and fields, navigation research is fragmented and inconsistent. In this article, we argue that this is the result of navigation research having generally been conducted without guidance from an overarching theoretical framework. In order to illustrate our position, we have included results from a very simple…
