Abstract:
This item is not the definitive copy. Please use the following citation when referencing this material: Dillon, A. (1996) Myths, misconceptions and an alternative perspective on information usage and the electronic medium. In: J. F. Rouet et al (eds.) Hypertext and Cognition, Mahwah NJ: LEA, 25-42. Abstract: Hypertext represents the forefront of a technological wave in education that is driven more by enthusiasm for the computer than by reliable knowledge of the human user. This chapter outlines some of the myths and misconceptions that have emerged in recent years about hypertext and its use for information-intensive activities such as learning. In so doing, it emphasizes experimental evidence over wishful thinking and outlines an ergonomic perspective on human information usage that seeks to maximize usability and ultimately the acceptability of this emerging technology.
