The Use of Animation as a Pedagogical Agent
Participants were shown one of two animated videos designed to teach them about Classical Conditioning. The only difference between the two videos was that one featured expressive visuals and motion while the other did not. After watching the video, they completed a short quiz on the material and a survey rating their interest in the video. The results were recorded to see which video was the most effective at teaching and engaging the participants. It was found that participants rated the more animated video higher in terms of engagement, but there was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of test scores.
