Abstract

This paper reports the process and results of a qualitative study conducted in a graduate course on designing hypermedia learning environments for children. Learning to produce software using Authorware Professional, graduate students from many international countries worked with elementaryaged children in an English-as-Second-Language program to produce creative stories in a hypermedia format with tri-lingual narration. Children wrote and illustrated their stories and worked with their partners to make choices on screen design, animation, and sound effects. Multiple data sources were used to examine the impact of children-as-design partners on their hypermedia programs, features important to the children, and the change in design knowledge structures of the developers. Feasibility issues are discussed for replication.
