Effects of prior knowledge and concept-map structure on disorientation, cognitive load, and learning Abstract This study explored the effects of prior knowledge (high vs. low; HPK and LPK) and concept-map structure (hierarchical vs. network; HS and NS) on disorientation, cognitive load, and learning from non-linear documents on " the infection process of a(More)

In this paper we examine the cognitive processes of information retrieval in hypertext. We propose a cyclical model which includes three main phases : evaluation, selection and processing. Each phase includes a set of specific processes. For each phase we propose a definition and empirical illustrations. We also discuss the interactions which take place(More)
The study examined the interaction effects of prior knowledge and hypertexts structure (network vs. hierarchy) on comprehension. Comprehension was investigated analyzing jointly three dependent variables: comprehension outcomes, coherence of the reading sequences and feelings of disorientation. The results supported most of the assumptions showing an(More)
—Retrieving information is a central operation when accomplishing most of today business tasks. Unfortunately, a person has hard time finding relevant information necessary to accomplish its business task due to the complexity of these information processes. In certain corporate bodies (aeronautical, automotive, etc.) these tasks are critical and should be(More)

Pour une approche ergonomique de la conception d'un dispositif de formation à distance utilisant les TIC RÉSUMÉ : Cet article présente ce que pourrait être une approche ergonomique de la conception d'un dispositif de formation utilisant les TIC. Plus qu'une méthode, qui indique aux concepteurs comment il faut concevoir, l'approche ergonomique présentée(More)
This article presents research that aims to construct a computer-based system that (1) supports learners in organizing themselves in the context of a mediated pedagogic collective challenge and (2) supports human tutors in monitoring the learners' process, and supporting it. We present the result of an exploratory experiment that helps in understanding the(More)
Learners engaged in CSCL macro-scripts are involved in self-organization activities. We present an exploratory study that suggests that Bardram's theoretical model of collective work dynamics is a pertinent basis for both (1) designing interfaces providing a passive support that engages learners in an explicit organization activity, and (2) making learners'(More)
Taking into account the context is important to improve the way systems provide relevant information to users. For this purpose, we introduce a business context information manager based on a novel and generic definition of the context. This manager takes into account various contextual dimensions and acts as an intermediary between Information Access(More)
