Effect of hypermedia display interfaces in facilitating achievement of learning objectives

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This experimental study was designed to compare three different types of hypermedia display interfaces in hypermedia design. They are (1) browser-scroll, (2) frame-based, and (3) popup-window interfaces. This study also investigated the potential interaction between the interface and students' prior knowledge, since prior knowledge has long been considered an important learning variable for acquiring new information. 145 undergraduate students participated in the study. A statistical multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) was performed to analyze collected data. Results showed significant main effects of the independent variables in all the criterion tests except for the treatment effect on the comprehension test.
