This paper will report findings from an experimental study of the comparative effects of using static and video screen-captured visuals to teach software skills to undergraduate Education majors at a medium-size university in the southeast U.S. Subjects were randomly assigned to one of four treatment groups--Static, Video, Video plus Text and Video plus Narration. Subjects completed an interactive web-based instructional module designed to teach a specific set of advanced software tasks using media that corresponded to the assigned treatment group. A posttest was administered following the treatments, assessing both conceptual recall and task performance. Participants receiving video plus narration significantly outperformed those in other groups, particularly those receiving only video. These findings are explained through the cognitive load principles of modality and split-attention, and offer some guidance to the effective design of multimedia screen capture tutorials.
