Abstract

The interaction effects of the cognitive style and the presentation order of learning material was explored in the study. Visualizers performed better when the graphic information was presented prior to the verbal information, whereas verbalizers did better when the verbal information was presented prior to the graphic information. The results of the present research have practical implication of personalized multimedia design based on the learner's cognitive style. The results also have suggested that the cognitive load of a multimedia material can be varied depending on the compatibility of the cognitive style and the material.
