Much of the research in this area has been conducted by considering domain knowledge. Nature Prior knowledge is an extremely important determinant of learning. In other words it is much easier to learn something new if you already have prior knowledge in that area of study. In fact prior knowledge is one of the main predictors of how well a learner will assimilate new information. Research makes clear distinctions between expert learning and novice learning showing that experts 13 Individual Differences and Web-Based Learning can easily identify meaningful patterns, perform tasks within the domain quickly and without error, have good long-term and short term memories, take more time to work through a given problem within the domain and have a better feel for when they make mistakes (Chi, Glaser & Farr, 1988).

Spatial contiguity principle: there is better learning when words and corresponding pictures are near rather than far from each other. The benefit of having words and pictures near to one another is that both representations can be held in working memory simultaneously and cognitive resources are reserved because the learner does not have to search for relevant material. Coherence principle: there is better learning when extraneous words and pictures are excluded rather than included. Extraneous words and pictures tend to compete with Figure 1.

Current Knowledge Information processing models described earlier in this chapter reflect an important influence of Long-Term-Memory on the learning process. Prior knowledge is all knowledge that is contained within such a store. It is generally accepted that such knowledge is in the form of organised sets of facts or concepts called schemata. As learners we tend to assimilate new knowledge by trying to accommodate it into already developed schemata. As a consequence of this process existing schemata or prior knowledge facilitates the retention and understanding of new knowledge.
