Effects of television captions on adult learning in the National Open University in Taiwan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The study showed that materials with caption have a positive impact on learning when compared with materials without captions. From the viewpoint of theory development, the study carried the implication to the adult cognition about the superiority of multiple-channel learning. Specifically, captions provide more stimulus to the human sensory system during the human-machine interaction, which promotes learners' perception of information and enhances learning.
