Abstract

Motivated by a lack of attention to learning strategies in online personalized e-learning, we design and test a new knowledge-map-enhanced interleaving learning design that challenges learners with a mix of different learning topics but reduces their intrinsic cognitive workload by exposing learners the prerequisites of these topics. Our design goal is to offer a better trade-off between exploring more knowledge gaps and exploiting one such gap, and thus help not only strong learners but also weak ones. Our pilot field experiment using 704 high school students in their English reading assignments provides initial support for our design.
