Abstract:Videos are playing an essential role in learning, causing research on video-based learning to increase tremendously. Empirical evidence has shown multiple advantages for learning when it comes to using learner- and system-control pacing for video watching. This study investigated the effects of learner- and system-control on mental effort, using both a conceptual and procedural video topic. Moreover, the usage of the control features and the effects on engagement and learning outcomes were investigated. University students (n=80) participated in this study and were allocated to groups differing in learner-control, system-control and segmentation using a between-subject design with repeated measures. The presented study resulted in statistically significant differences on gain scores for procedural knowledge development in favour of segmentation with learner-control compared to learner-control, segmented system-control and continuous system-control. This finding suggests that implementing segmentation with learner-control in educational videos with a procedural topic will result in better learning outcomes, but not for educational video with a conceptual topic.
