The Design and Development of Multimedia Presentation Modes in Reducing Cognitive Load for Students Different in Cognitive Style
Researchers have reported mixed results with deploying linear mode and segmented mode. The study demonstrated that simply incorporating two types of multimedia presentation mode into learning environments may not always be sufficient to improve learning. Segmented mode that provides individual control over random access to content may lead to better learning outcomes and higher learner satisfaction. The study offered an explanation for inconsistent findings reported in previous studies. It suggests that segmented mode can be a valuable means to improve learning effectiveness in e-learning environments; it is proved that there is a significant difference in student's achievement using linear mode and segmented mode at the significant level 0.05.
