With the expansion of e-learning platforms, we receive a great opportunity to learn and study just using an electronic device. In this paper, we measured the differences in information processing on screen and paper with 18 participants using an eye-tracker and an EDA wristband. Our findings show that the media type has a significant influence on cognitive workload and understandability of the content. The results of this work are of vital importance for the design of new intelligent user interfaces and reveal the necessity to take mental processes of users more into account
