College students learned about botany through an agent-based multimedia game. Students received either spoken or identical on-screen text explanations. Results reveal that students scored higher on retention, transfer, and program ratings in narration conditions than in text conditions. The media--desktop displays or headmounted displays--did not affect performance on measures of retention, transfer, or program ratings. (Contains 38 references and 4 tables.) (GCP)
