Literature review for hypermedia study from an individual learning differences perspective
Abstract:Most students cannot develop complex learning skills naturally. They have difficulty with acquiring complex knowledge. Hypermedia promises to accommodate individual differences enabling students to learn equally well. However, research reports have shown that not every student can benefit from hypermedia learning, because students need complex learning skills to manage the specific hypermedia learning environment. It is important to conduct effective individual difference research in order to provide information helpful to the instructional designers in designing interactive hypermedia. In this paper, 10 studies are divided into five categories according to current significant research groups in the hypermedia field. Learning from the learner’s perspective is discussed.
