Abstract: ELearning is particularly susceptible to the transference of print documents to the web which often only provides text and information tidbits to students. But researchers in the learning sciences are finding dramatic improvements in student knowledge acquisition in web-based courses that include semiotic tools. The knowledge gaps that can exist between what students know and need to learn can be filled through the use of semiotic mediation tools. The research of this study looks at why these tools can provide an important bridge between the sociocultural knowledge already existent in students and instructional content and discusses lessons learned in the compilation of the research for this study.
