Use of IBM LinkWay for Developing Tutorials.
Nagarkatte, Umesh P.; Nagarkatte, Shailaja U.
IBM LinkWay is an example of a hypertext and hypermedia authoring system. This paper summarizes a workshop presentation that demonstrates how to create a mathematics tutorial using LinkWay. An introduction discusses the guidelines for the tutorial. The guidelines consider the presentation of questions, help features for the students, feedback, reference location for students, and other pedagogical aspects of the tutorial. The following section defines terminology related to hypertext and hypermedia. The remainder of the paper guides the reader through the development of the fifth question of a five-question tutorial. The multiple choice question is presented together with potential feedback information and hints for the different responses. The reader is then taken through the following steps to prepare the question for the tutorial: (1) starting up of LinkWay; (2) creating of a new folder; (3) creating related pictures; (4) creating action spot buttons; (5) creating pages and typing responses; (6) cutting, pasting, and editing an object; and (7) finishing the tutorial.
