Abstract

Information-rich video media such as television science documentaries make significant intellectual demands on viewers. In watching this media, viewers are acquiring new ideas and revising their existing ideas as a kind of informal learning. Concept maps have a demonstrated value for learning in educational settings, suggesting they may also be exploited to good effect in the new technology of companion apps for television programmes - web enabled applications running on tablets and similar devices that provide accompanying synchronized content for television programmes. CompanionMap was created to investigate the potential for using animated, interactive concept maps in television companion apps. It was demonstrated with an astronomy documentary programme and evaluation with viewer participants in a controlled study showed it improved understanding and recall of the programme. The development of the concept map for the app is described with reflection on the issues arising from its use in this setting.
