Abstract: Music, to many, is a major part of life. Daily tasks are accompanied by a sound track from radio, streaming or other media. What happens when music is paired with digital delivery education? This study seeks to find if there is a relationship between music and information recall. A post hoc experimental design was used to expose students to four short e-learning modules, each with a different background music genre. The researchers examined genre and studying/listening habits as well as immediate recall and long term information retention to explore the possible interactions of the two independent variables on each of the two dependent variables.
