This most unusual book results from a NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW) held in Rottenburg am Neckar, FRG, in July 1989, within the new special programme on Advanced Educational Technology. The book is an annotated collection of papers defining hypermedia in several contexts and discussing how to design the information structure, the user interface and the learning model. Hypermedia development is compared with instructional design processes, and development assumptions and processes for different hypermedia environments are discussed. The book is more than a compilation of the papers presented at the workshop. It is a print-on-paper implementation of the workshop. The workshop included presentations, hardware demonstrations, sharing and browsing of hypertexts, and much discussion of a wide range of questions about hypertext. The authors and editors have tried in the format of this book to share some of the experiences of the workshop with the reader. Thus the book exhibits some of the characteristics of hypermedia.
