HyperCard for Educators. An Introduction.
Bull, Glen L.; Harris, Judi
This guide is designed to provide a quick introduction to the basic elements of HyperCard for teachers who are familiar with other computer applications but may not have worked with hypermedia applications; previous familiarity with HyperCard or with Macintosh computers is not necessary. It is noted that HyperCard is a software construction toolkit that can be used to develop many types of class projects, ranging from interactive stories and dinosaur databases to hypermedia applications involving audio and video as well as computer text and graphics. The tutorial is presented in five chapters: (1) Electronic Notecards; (2) HyperCard Buttons; (3) HyperCard Fields; (4) HyperCard Backgrounds; and (5) HyperCard Stacks. An appendix contains information on version 2 of HyperCard. Extensive drawings illustrating computer screen displays accompany the text. (ALF)
