Abstract:The investigator concluded that neither the hypertext nor the linear CAI increased cognitive learning or knowledge retention to any greater degree than the other, that students tend to have a more favorable attitude toward CAI when given the opportunity to sequence their own instruction, as provided in the hypertext version, that neither version of the CAI treatment was any more efficient in time-saving than the other version, and that elaboration theory of instruction provided a sound instructional design framework for both the linear and hypertext CAI tutorials. Additional research is needed using hypertext to its fullest potential to better determine its impact on cognitive learning and knowledge retention.
