Abstract: In this investigation, the researchers examined the learning experiences of geriatric learners compared to young learners using physiological research tools as well as traditional assessment instruments. Specifically, this research project focuses on electrical reactions of the brain and learning acquisition while learners interact with web-based instructional content. The results show that both groups of learners experienced similar EEG scores during the learning activities. Additionally, the results of the pre-and post-tests show that both groups experienced an increase in learning. Differences were found in the design of concept maps and completion time.
