This paper describes a controlled experiment concerning the use of a learning aid during the instructional procedure. The core issue of investigation is whether this instructional aid can augment the cognitive transfer of the learners by personalizing the offered knowledge. A controlled experiment was performed with the participation of 79 students. The results have shown that for the transfer of simple information this "lesson sheet" does not provide any statistically significant advantage, yet for complex information a statistically significant better performance is observed for the student group that used the tool.
