  1. Multiple forms of dynamic representation

    Shaaron Ainsworth & Nicolas VanLabeke

    The terms dynamic representation and animation are often used as if they are synonymous, but in this paper we argue that there are multiple ways to represent phenomena that change over time. Time... More

  2. Interrogation of a dynamic visualization during learning

    Richard Lowe

    Because animations can depict situational dynamics explicitly, they have the potential to help learners build coherent, high-quality mental models of complex change processes. Further, interactive ... More

  3. Learning with hyperlinked videos—design criteria and efficient strategies for using audiovisual hypermedia

    Carmen Zahn, Beatriz Barquero & Stephan Schwan

    In this article, we discuss the results of an experiment in which we studied two apparently conflicting classes of design principles for instructional hypervideos: (1) those principles derived from... More

  4. The cognitive benefits of interactive videos: learning to tie nautical knots

    Stephan Schwan & Roland Riempp

    In contrast to their traditional, non-interactive counterparts, interactive dynamic visualisations allow users to adapt their form and content to their individual cognitive skills and needs.... More

  5. Discovery learning, representation, and explanation within a computer-based simulation: finding the right mix

    Lloyd P. Rieber, Shyh-Chii Tzeng & Kelly Tribble

    The purpose of this research was to explore how adult users interact and learn during an interactive computer-based simulation supplemented with brief multimedia explanations of the content. A... More

  6. The active integration of information during learning with dynamic and interactive visualisations

    Daniel Bodemer, Rolf Ploetzner, Inge Feuerlein & Hans Spada

    Computer-based learning environments commonly comprise symbolic as well as static and dynamic pictorial representations, frequently combined with the possibility of modifying them interactively.... More
