Abstract: The help-seeking behavior of 67 learners (29 low and 38 high conceptual-gain) using a hypermedia environment to learn about the circulatory system was investigated in a naturalistic tutoring condition. Results showed that participants who demonstrated greater conceptual gain (from pretest to posttest) asked significantly greater number of cognitive questions relating to the content of the material than context questions pertaining to the environment. The study has implications for understanding the role of help-seeking behavior during learning with hypermedia and the design of hypermedia tools to facilitate help-seeking behavior.
