When Is Audio Narration Helpful?

Experiencing eLearning

In a discussion on eLearning Heroes , Judith Reymond asked about the research on when or whether audio narration is helpful to adult learners.

What are your experiences with audio, especially with on-screen text?

Audio in E-Learning

Kapp Notes

Audio is a powerful and impactful tool, but it is often used incorrectly within e-learning courses.
