Abstract:

The exploratory survey has opened up a number of problems relating to the effectiveness of various kinds of introductory and concluding sequences in films. For the films studied the introductions and summaries made small positive contributions to learning, with one exception. This exception, in which the introduction produced an adverse effect on learning, underlines the need for further experimental work to determine what kinds of introductory and concluding sequences will be most useful in promoting learning from films.
