Compréhension d'informations multimodales : influence du mode de présentation et de la mémoire de travail

Abstract : Multimedia learning requires learners to understand and to relate multimodal information. From a cognitive point of view, the integration of information relies on complex psychological processes which are influenced by the way information is presented as well as by learners’ cognitive capacities. Comprehension and memory theories as well as multimedia learning models serve as a framework to study the influence of multimedia presentation on the comprehension of multimodal information. The involvement of specific memories during this activity is also studied with a dual-task paradigm. An experiment shows that the mode of presentation of verbal information (visual vs auditory) does not affect the comprehension. However, it indicates that a combined presentation of auditory verbal and visual iconic information would facilitate the integration of multimodal information. Results failed to show that spatial memory is specifically involved, but suggest that the integration of multimedia information would involve the phonological memory. The issue of the involvement of some general memory capacities during information integration is raised.
