Does anyone know of any reserach recently done on the user's preference of online learning methods (i.e. reading articles over watching videos) ? A lot of UX sites touch on these topics, but do not go into detail.
What I know is that it tends to be a user preference, but is there any data to back up on side or the other?
I am new to the field of HCI. I need to get a grip on basic concepts, theories and fundamentals in the field of HCI. Can you suggest me some readings that influenced the advancement of HCI throughout the history? (readings I can get a thorough understanding of basic building blocks of HCI). They can be anything from research papers to books to informal write-ups.
