New paper added to coolthings bibliography collection: Findings from Net Geners’ Multi-Modal and Multi-Task Learning

Zheng, R. (2011). Findings from Net Geners’ Multi-Modal and Multi-Task Learning. In Proceedings of World Conference on E-Learning in Corporate, Government, Healthcare, and Higher Education 2011 (pp. 489-493). Chesapeake, VA: AACE.

The paper focuses on an important aspect in Net Geners’ learning, that is, multi-modal/multi-task learning. The findings of the study revealed that multi-tasks can induce high cognitive load thus lowers performance in learning. Although previous research suggests that multimedia learning is closely related to spatial-visual cognitive style, the current study did not find significant results for such relationship. Finally, our correlation analyses not only lend support to the above finding but also reveal the important relationship between variables such as the negative and positive relationships among the factors involved in multimodal and multi-task learning.
