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…

Wijekumar, Kay; Ferguson, Lon; Wagoner, Diane – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2006
Assessment of learning is critical to the learners, teachers, and designers of learning environments. Current assessment techniques in web-based distance learning apply age-old techniques to a new medium and are not adequate for web-based distance learning environments (WBDLE). The goals of this article are to extend existing critiques of…

Stanton, N. A.; Baber, C. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1994
Compares Hypertext researchers=FE and designers=FE metaphor of navigation in three-dimensional (physical) space with Hypertext (problem space). This paper discusses navigation concepts; physical space versus spacial and temporal relationships; navigation aids; cognitive mapping; information retrieval; and a content analysis of a screen of…

Barker, Philip – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1992
Special types of prosthetic devices have been designed to support the specific needs of disabled and handicapped computer users in retrieving information. Of particular importance are interfaces based on the use of sound, tactile operations, and gestures. Such interfaces may be used to provide disabled people with access to hypermedia information.…

Reinking, David – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1992
Discusses conceptual differences between electronic and printed texts using a literature review that categorizes studies as convergent (i.e., electronic text as conceptually the same as printed text) or divergent (i.e., electronic text as conceptually different.) Four differences based on theoretical positions and findings from divergent studies…

Goldman-Segall, Ricki – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1993
Discussion of the analysis of video data recommends that data be layered. Theoretical issues are examined; the video methodologies of a graduate student researcher are described; and the use of a significance measure which allows users to layer or weigh the relative importance of topics with computer software is explained. (Contains 29…

Plowman, Lydia – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1994
Findings from fieldwork analyzing children's use of four interactive multimedia programs are compared with a description of early film features and used as the basis to consider problems faced by an audience encountering a nascent medium. Methods adopted to facilitate understanding of films and their suitability for adaptation to multimedia…

Jacobson, Michael J. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1994
Discusses research issues related to using cognitive learning and instructional theory to design technology-based learning environments such as hypertext and hypermedia. A "Theory-to-Design" framework is described, and the framework is then used to analyze theoretical and design issues raised in a hypermedia research project. (Contains…

Bueno, Kathleen A.; Nelson, Wayne A. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1993
Discussion of computer-based second-language learning focuses on a study of elementary school students in grades four through six who used a contextualized computer environment that was designed to provide precommunicative practice with Spanish. Highlights include student roles in small groups, cooperative learning, and the teacher's role.…
