Guess, A. (2008) Better Learning with Sites and Sound Inside Higher Education, Dec 4

A report of research conducted by Phil Ice, at West Virginia University, that compared the learning of students using basic wordprocessing software with those using Buzzword, a Flash-based suite from Adobe that allowed students to add audio, graphics and diagrams to their work. He found students using the multimedia software were “more likely to explain more complex concepts using a combination of text and non-text based materials. The majority of participants … expressed the view that it was easier to express themselves at a higher cognitive level when they could present material using multiple media sources.”
