"This book falls at the fruitful intersection of technology design, cognitive psychology, education, and communication. Cortese moves deftly through the literatures in each of these fi elds to design and execute two clean studies that help to advance our understanding of the complex interplay between human motivation, information processing, educational technology design, and learning. It moves the literature in this exciting and pragmatic domain forward and demonstrates where the next phase of research should go." - William P. Eveland, Jr., Associate Professor of Communication & Political Science, School of Communication, The Ohio State University
