Eric Jamet

Professeur des universités

- Professor of cognitive psychology and ergonomics . - Head of LOUSTIC, a multidisciplinary ICT Usage Lab.


My research focuses on various issues related to the cognitive processing of complex documents and human-machine interaction:

  • E-learning and multimedia comprehension

                   - Attention guiding in mutimedia learning

                   - Redundancy effects in mutimedia learning

                   - Illustrated text comprehension

                   - Learning with video podcasts and animations


  •  Usability, user experience evaluation and ICT acceptance.
