Gisbert Dittrich (Dept. of Informatics, Dortmund University, Germany)
Abstract: To use hypertext/hypermedia elements in teaching at universities an author not only needs knowledge of the technological possibilities. In addition he/she has to renew a here so called mental model of the relevant aspects of the material to be transferred. For the author, this last mentioned problem seems to be a central and often very complicated and time consuming one.
