Abstract

Flow theory has been borrowed from psychology to address positive user experiences with computers and Internet. The flow experience in computer-mediated environment (CME) has been correlated to increased communication, loaming, exploratory behavior and positive affect. A comparative experiment between CME and traditional paper-pencil environment was conducted to verify whether particular environments or interfaces are more conducive to yielding flow among users. The results showed that there were no differences in flow dimensions except 'enjoyment' between CME and paper-pencil environment. But the distorted senses of time among users were significantly different between the media environments.
