    Recently, Microsoft Corp. launched Version 2 of its Multimedia Viewer Publishing Toolkit (MVPT), thereby facilitating the low-cost authoring of hypermedia systems for the Windows graphical user interface (GUI) on personal computers (PCs). Using these tools, Microsoft have produced a successful series of CD-ROM based hypermedia systems including the Encarta encyclopaedia and the Bookshelf writer's ... View full abstract»

    PLE, the Programmed Learning Environment, is a computer-based learning (CBL) environment that was originally designed to support the delivery of courses that comprise traditional lecture material supplemented with intensive laboratory based sessions. PLE is currently being piloted in the software development and software engineering modules run at the author's university. This paper demonstrates t... View full abstract»

  • Content analysis: a methodology for hypermedia design

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):7/1 - 7/5

    Content analysis consists of five main stages: (1) determine the objectives; (2) define the unit of analysis; (3) construct categories for analysis; (4) test the coding to assess reliability; and (5) conduct the analysis. To start with, text and graphics are entered into a hypertext system, but no links have been made. The author is now faced with the task of analysing the information on the scree...

  • Designer tools for hypertext authoring

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):4/1 - 4/4

    Hypertext authors lack experience. In fact, the whole business of designing and producing hypertext systems is still a relatively new discipline. Creating hypertexts is complex because of the richness of interconnectivity that exists among nodes and links in hypertexts. As such, the demands placed on hypertext authors in authoring hypertexts cannot be underestimated. Hypertext authors have to perf... View full abstract»

  • Creating hypermedia documents by doing: an alternative to authoring

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):3/1 - 3/3

    Describes how we provided a way for transient users of a “virtual trade exhibition” on the Internet to create hypertext documents by acting rather than writing. “TaTTOO'95 On-line” was a set of Internet-based online events, implemented using two key technologies: the World-Wide Web (WWW) and MOO. MOO (MUD, Object-Oriented) is a multi-user, text-based virtual world, based on... View full abstract»

  • Multimedia authoring paradigms

    A large number of multimedia authoring systems already exist, as either academic prototypes or as readily available commercial systems. Although each offers its own particular way of assembling a multimedia presentation, a number of distinct authoring paradigms can be identified: structuring, timeline, flowchart and script. We describe these and discuss their relative advantages and disadvantages.... View full abstract»

  • Hypermedia manuals for interactive systems

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):5/1 - 5/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (284 KB)

    As interactive devices become more sophisticated, and if systems are revised frequently, it will become ever more difficult for manufacturers to provide manuals that suitably explain them. This statement alone justifies the investigation and development of a paradigm for systems and electronic manuals. Traditional paper-based manuals for systems are extremely limited, containing simple linear desc... View full abstract»

  • Authoring hypermedia systems for blind people

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):6/1 - 6/3
    Cited by:  Patents (6)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (236 KB)

    Access to information in electronic forms is currently difficult for blind people, but electronic information forms also provide great potential to overcome the difficulties that blind people have in accessing information in general. The ACCESS Project is developing tools which will provide interfaces to computer-based systems which will be adaptable to the needs of different user groups. One demo... View full abstract»
