Summary: This study focused on using test and satisfaction scores to compare formats of the same e-learning activity with different degrees of interactivity to determine which was more effective and preferred by students.
Description: The authors compared neurology e-learning formats requiring various degrees of interactivity and student participation to determine which was more effective and preferred by students. Two formats of an e-learning module on speech and language disorders were initially developed. The first was a conventional didactic video file format. The second was a more interactive format with integrated quiz. Although students preferred the interactive format, they achieved higher test scores with the more conventional didactic format. Based on these results, they went on to develop a third format, consisting of the conventional video interspersed with pauses for the quiz questions from the second format.
