Why Speech-Over

Do you learn better from a lecture or from a book?

In college, students face the dilemma: Why not skip the lecture and just read the book?

Most successful students listen to the lecture – and then read the book. But some only read the book and do well.

The same dichotomy exists in e-learning: there is "lecture-based" e-learning and "book-based" e-learning.

lecture-based e-learning

Lecture-based e-learning is a lecture on the computer, supported by screen topic titles, text bullets and graphics. It could be a recorded video of a lecture or a presentation to which a lecturer's audio track has been added and synched. The narration text appears only as subtitles and in speaker notes.

book-based e-learning

Book-based e-learning is a book on the computer, supported by graphics and navigation aids. The text appears on the screen usually without audio except that screen-reading software like JAWS is added to read the book aloud if needed.

Which type of e-learning is best?

As in college, most people learn better with lecture-based e-learning – as long as they can read and review the material afterwards.

There are many reasons why this is true:

  • The lecturer elaborates on the subject, brings relevant examples to illustrate it, and connects it to prior knowledge
  • The lecturer delivers much more content. A two minute slide can have 300 spoken words but not more than 50 words of readable text.
  • The lecturer uses phrasing and articulation in his speech to bring out the exact meaning of the material in a way that text cannot do.
  • The lecturer emphasizes what is important to know about the subject and what can be ignored.
  • The lecturer's voice captures the learner's attention, sets a pace and motivates learning.

If lecture-based e-learning is better, why don't more companies use it?

The big disadvantage of lecture-based e-learning is that it is expensive and time-consuming to record and integrate a professional lecturer's voice into a presentation and to maintain and update it. This is why many companies opt for the less-expensive book-based e-learning.
