Abstract

Suggests that too much Web-based instruction assumes that the Web is a library that can be used to convey knowledge, that searching and finding information equals learning, and that hyperlinking is good instruction. Critiques these assumptions based on constructivism and offers instructional methods to counteract their effects. (Author/LRW)
