Waniek, Jacqueline; Schafer, Thomas – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2009
The goal of this study was to examine the role of domain and system knowledge on learner performance in reading and information search in hypermedia. Previous studies have shown that prior knowledge is an important individual factor for effective hypermedia use. However, current research lacks a full understanding of how these two aspects of prior…

Barker, Philip – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1992
Special types of prosthetic devices have been designed to support the specific needs of disabled and handicapped computer users in retrieving information. Of particular importance are interfaces based on the use of sound, tactile operations, and gestures. Such interfaces may be used to provide disabled people with access to hypermedia information.…

Jones, Judi; Dietrich, Suzanne Wagner – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1994
Discusses the development of an abstract model for hypermedia test guides. The model uses an object-oriented approach and is built on the declarative foundation of first-order logic. This method produces a model that is easy to construct and extends to cover new media technology. (Contains 27 references.) (JLB)

Beasley, Robert E.; Waugh, Michael L. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1995
Assesses hypermedia design issues and examines how learners access information in a hierarchically organized hypermedia environment. Evaluates three browsing methods: "hotwords" and two distinctively different cognitive mapping architectures. Results suggest that the inclusion of a properly constructed cognitive map can diminish feelings…

Kearsley, Greg; Heller, Rachelle S. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 1995
Examines studies that evaluate public access systems spanning experiments, field tests, and prototypes, and discusses quality control, cost-effectiveness, and issues for future research. Results suggest that system designers and developers need to be more selective in the type of evaluations they conduct; and there is a need for comparative…
