Abstract

Education can profit significantly from hypermedia. However, in our experience the majority of students having the choice of learning on the computer or from a print medium prefer the latter when it comes to "challenging" formal domains. For online learning material to be successful its structure and presentation have to reflect the characteristics of hypermedia. This paper presents a model of the didactical structure of online learning content based on methods of instructional design. The model specifically addresses two major problems of the medium web for learning: loss of overview due to low information density of the medium and short attention spans due to fast fatigue of perception. It is the basis of how 12 German universities structure their content in the joint project WWR which aims at providing a pool of 150 XML-based online learning modules in technical computer science.
