This study investigated the learners' satisfaction, motivation, and mental effort in Goal Based Scenario centered 3D multimedia learning environment (GBSc3DM). The design of the GBSc3DM was based on the Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) principles. Two versions of the GBSc3DM were developed. While Cognitive Load Theory principles were taken into account and implemented in the design of the first version (+CLT), those principles were not applied in the design of the second version (CLT). A total of 82 9th grade high school students participated in the study. Mixed methods were used to gather the data. The findings of the study revealed that the learners were satisfied with the Goal Based Scenario components and the CLT principles implemented in the first version of GBSc3DM. The learners pointed out that GBSc3DM and CLT principles motivated them to learn the topic. However, not only were the learners not satisfied with the second version (CLT), but they also found it distracting. The findings showed that the learners invested higher mental effort in the second version (-CLT) of GBSc3DM.

The effect of augmented reality activities on improving preschool children’s spatial skills
Gecü Parmaksız, Zeynep; Delialioğlu, Ömer (Informa UK Limited, 2019-11-01)
This study compares the effect of Augmented Reality (AR) based virtual manipulatives to physical manipulatives for teaching geometric shapes to preschool children to improve their spatial skills. A quasi-experimental research design was utilized in order to answer the research questions. The context of the research was a public primary school in Turkey with 72 preschool children, ages ranging from five to six. As the treatment, while the experimental group used tablet computers with AR applications, the con...

ARSLANTAŞ, TUĞBA KAMALI; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner; ARSLANTEKİN, BANU (Informa UK Limited, 2019-05-01)
The main aim of this study was to design, develop and test the instructional effectiveness of a web-based English vocabulary drill program developed for visually impaired middle school students. In this respect, the study focused on the educational affordances of the program and its contribution on VI students' spelling and semantics knowledge in English vocabulary. Depending on the purpose and the nature of the study, exploratory case study and single-subject research were implemented. Face-to-face interve...
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...
A systematic review of eye tracking research on multimedia learning
ALEMDAĞ, ECENAZ; Çağıltay, Kürşat (Elsevier BV, 2018-10-01)
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 co...
Student perceptions on learning by design method in web-based learning environment : a case study
Akman, Evrim; Karaaslan, Hasan; Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technology (2010)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the perceptions of students in an implementation of “Learning by Design” method through a web based learning environment. The information gathered from the students enrolled in the undergraduate course; “Foundations of Distance Education” in 2009 Summer School and 2009-2010 Fall Semesters was evaluated. The course was given in blended form, i.e. face to face lessons and online instructional activities were performed together. In the web based part of the course, ...
