Internet Learning and the Building of Knowledge

by Juliann Cortese


In this unprecedented work, Juliann Cortese heightens our understanding of the learning process as it relates to information acquired through the Internet.

Internet Learning and the Building of Knowledge shows us how design elements such as pop-up windows with augmented content and relational links influence knowledge structure as well as definitional and factual knowledge.

The book also notes that personal factors such as motivation and expertise interact with web site design to influence learning outcomes. It also sheds light on how learning from a website can be primed based on the content presented before exposure.

This book is a must for educators concerned with designing hypermedia environments for learning.
