Influence of Training and Exposure on the Usage of Breadcrumb Navigation (18 Feb 2004)
It was hypothesized that merely exposing participants to usage of breadcrumb trails would prompt participants to use the shortcut tool for navigation. We found that mere exposure alone was not enough to significantly influence their usage more than the participants receiving no exposure to the breadcrumb trail. However, we did find that minimal training did affect participantsí usage of the breadcrumb trails and resulted in quicker completion times, visited fewer pages, and minimal use of the Back button.
