The GlobalEd Project, a Web-based international negotiation simulation embedded in the middle school social studies curriculum, was used in this investigation. The study employed a quasi-experimental design with a multimedia group (MG) and a text group (TG). A total of 190 students participated in the study. Results indicated that students in the MG had marginally larger gains in knowledge and interest than their counterparts in the TG. In addition, students in the MG used the Web site more extensively than students in the TG. Directions for future research and multimedia developers are discussed||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7042||ISSN:||07380569||DOI:||10.1080/07380560802688299||Rights:||© 2009 Taylor & Francis Group||Type:||Article|
