Multimedia: The Use of Computers in Litigation, Trial, and Administrative Proceedings

Raymond C. Hauschel, Natural Resources & Environmental Litigation II (1996)

Whether we live in Cairo, Illinois or Cairo, Egypt, the advent, popularization, and accessibility of television and computers, as well as the instant access to information it affords us, has changed the way we think about and look at the world. We are constantly bombarded with images, data, and information. We take our information quickly and move on. The very process by which we learn has changed forever. This paper summarizes the findings of a study designed to systematically explore how computer generated visual support affects the persuasiveness of a presentation.
