Dana, Ann S.; Handler, Marianne G.
The alphabet can be used as a framework for identifying key issues, ideas, and factors that teachers and students need to consider in developing hypermedia projects. Rather than in alphabetical order, the terms are introduced as they apply to the discussion on the teaching of multimedia skills. The following terms and concepts are highlighted: audience (users); the build-review-revise process; consistency; development of ideas; evaluation; feedback; graphics; help; icons; juristic issue (such as copyright); knowledge of instructional design; learning/instructional styles; metaphor; navigation in the interactive environment; objects; planning; the research question; references; software; terminology; user control; visual effects; webs; "x marks the spot/Y you are here"; and"zoom.". An alphabetical list of the terms, three references, and eighteen suggested readings are provided. (AEF)
