    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    This study investigates the reduction in frustration experienced by early learners of 3D Maya by reducing the cognitive load of the learning materials. It compares the relative efficacy of the traditional front-of-class demonstration with printable text and image, and narrated video format - with the main focus on the latter. It found that participants preferred the video tutorial over other formats and reported higher satisfaction with the overall learning experience. This was due to the reduced cognitive load of the video tutorial when compared to the other formats.
