Abstract

Large-scale hypertext implementations designed to provide information are common enough (especially as websites); however, large-scale instructional equivalents are, at this juncture, rarer. This article discusses: l the design and development of a large hypermedia book consisting of more than 3,100 HTML, JPEG, GIF, and MOV files; l the morphology of the project through several stages, highlighting issues arising from developing the product with HTML rather than with a more hospitable authoring program; and l a description of a number of things we learned from the "school of hard knocks"-some profound, some mun-dane- in the hope that by sensitizing readers to some of the problems encountered and decisions made (and some-times re-made), we can help the reader avoid some of the pitfalls we encountered.
