A systematic review of eye tracking research on multimedia learning

Çağıltay, Kürşat
This study provides a current systematic review of eye tracking research in the domain of multimedia learning. The particular aim of the review is to explore how cognitive processes in multimedia learning are studied with relevant variables through eye tracking technology. To this end, 52 articles, including 58 studies, were analyzed. Remarkable results are that (1) there is a burgeoning interest in the use of eye tracking technology in multimedia learning research; (2) studies were mostly conducted with college students, science materials, and the temporal and count scales of eye tracking measurements; (3) eye movement measurements provided inferences about the cognitive processes of selecting, organizing, and integrating; (4) multimedia learning principles, multimedia content, individual differences, metacognition, and emotions were the potential factors that can affect eye movement measurements; and (5) findings were available for supporting the association between cognitive processes inferred by eye tracking measurements and learning performance. Specific gaps in the literature and implications of existing findings on multimedia learning design were also determined to offer suggestions for future research and practices.


Exploring the effect of using different levels of emotional design features in multimedia science learning
UZUN, AHMET MURAT; Yıldırım, Zahide (Elsevier BV, 2018-04-01)
The current study aims to examine the influence of incorporating different emotional design approaches into multimedia on 7th grade middle school students' positive emotions, mental effort investments and learning achievements (recall and transfer). To this end, four different instructional materials were created. Each material was identical, with only the extent of emotional design differing. For the Neutral Design (ND) group, none of the emotional design principles were used (monochromatic grayscale). For...
Further Evidence for Using Online Discussion Boards in the Classroom
Sheen, Mercedes; Yekani, Hajar Aman Key; Jordan, Timothy R. (SAGE Publications, 2019-04-01)
Recent research compared the use of case studies to online discussion boards to teach about anxiety disorders. The current study extends this research to mood disorders, reports pretest and posttest scores on four learning outcomes, and compares midterm exam scores from Fall 2016 and Fall 2017 when case studies and online discussion boards were used as supplementary learning material, respectively. The results indicate students in the discussion board condition (DBC) rated their learning outcomes significan...
Computational representation of protein sequences for homology detection and classification
Oğul, Hasan; Mumcuoğlu, Ünal Erkan; Department of Information Systems (2006)
Machine learning techniques have been widely used for classification problems in computational biology. They require that the input must be a collection of fixedlength feature vectors. Since proteins are of varying lengths, there is a need for a means of representing protein sequences by a fixed-number of features. This thesis introduces three novel methods for this purpose: n-peptide compositions with reduced alphabets, pairwise similarity scores by maximal unique matches, and pairwise similarity scores by...
Time-frequency analysis of visual evoked potentials for interhemispheric transfer time and proportion in callosal fibers of different diameters
Ulusoy, İlkay; Halıcı, Uğur; EROĞLU, canan; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-04-01)
This study is an extension of the experimental research of Nalcaci et al., who presented 16 subjects with a reversal of checkerboard pattern as stimuli in the right visual field or left visual field and recorded EEG at O1, O2, P3, and P4. They applied the chosen bandpass filters (4-8, 8-15, 15-20, 20-32 Hz) to the VEPs of subjects and obtained four different components for each VEP. The first aim of this study is to improve the previous report using some methods in time-frequency domain to estimate interhem...
Learners’ perceptions of a web based course : a case study
Güler, Melek; Karaaslan, Hasan; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2006)
This study investigated the students’ perceptions about a web based course. Their perceptions about course materials, level of communication, online course support, and satisfaction were discussed in this study. In this case study, Information Technology in Education II (CEIT 112), an undergraduate course at the department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (CEIT), Middle East Technical University (METU) at 2004/2005 spring semester was taken into investigation. Totally 34 1st year CEIT stud...
