Goals, Approach, and Participant Requirements:

Workshop theme and goals
Theme: Learning from hypertext experiences.  A reflection on innovations, 
experiences and evaluations of educational and training applications of 

To identify and disseminate issues in the use of hypertext which can inform 
and help set the agenda for future research.

To establish and build a community within and across the hypertext 
communities which reflects upon the application and practice of the use of 
hypertext in learning alongside leading edge research issues.

The workshop content directly addresses the HT’01 conference themes 
“Experiences with the application of hypermedia”; “Hypermedia in education 
and training” and “Empirical studies and hypermedia evaluation”.
Many of those actively involved in theoretical hypertext research are also 
practitioners who make use of their applications in the context of 
education and training. There has been a growing awareness that reflections 
and evaluations of the educational and training experiences of using 
hypertext might usefully inform hypertext research.  This workshop provides 
an opportunity to nurture this type of reflection.
