Hypertext system Hypertext system Presentation Transcript

    • Concept of Text
    The concept of hypertext was initially pioneered by Bush,
    who is known as the “grandfather” of hypertext, in 1945.
    Modern computers, furthermore, allow us to expand the
    notion of text to include not only texts and pictures as in
    printed texts, but also sound, music, animation and video in
    single hypertext system.
    • What is Hypertext?
    In general sense, hypertext means non-sequential
    reading and writing. A hypertext system allows a user to
    link information together, thereby creating trails
    through associated materials. A link connects words or
    Sentences in one electronic document to relate
    information in another document. Look at figure 1 :
  • Hypertext and Hypermedia
    As a matter of fact, hypermedia is similar to hypertext.
    the only distinction is that instead of linking just text,
    users can link to other media, such as graphic, video,
    spreadsheet, animation as well as sound. In short, users
    of hypermedia systems can link together information of
    any media type provided by current technology.
  • Advantages of Hypertext
    • ease of tracing references
    • Ease of creating new references
    • Information structuring
    • Global views
    • Customized documents
    • Modularity of information
    • Consistency of information
    • Task stacking
    • Collaboration
  • Problems with Hypertext
    Conklin had the opinion that:
    Along with the power to organize information much
    more complexly comes the problem of having to know:
    • Where you are in the network and
    • How to get to some other place that you know (or think) exists in the network. He call this the “disorientation” problem.
  • Hypertext Application
    Due to the capability of the hypertext system as a
    computer medium (this enables users to navigate and
    browse information), the application of hypertext is,
    now, being developed. Some of hypertext applications
    are listed below:
    • Business
    • Information resources and
    • Personal learning
  • Application of Hypertext in education
    The hypertext can be utilized for educational purposes,
    such as for creating a personal learning tutorial which is
    commonly known as the computer assisted learning
    (CAL). The application of hypertext for educational
    purposes, especially for creating the CAL, is due to its
    Interactive capability and flexibility.
  • Hypertext in language learning
    The increasing interest to apply hypertext system for
    language learning and teaching purposes is due to the
    capability of hypertext-interactive capability and flexibility-
    as a computer medium .
    As a matter of fact, hypertext system can be implemented in
    learning of all languages skills – listening, speaking, reading,
    and writing – and also language aspects (components), such
    as vocabulary or grammar.
  • Conclusion
    The hypertext system is the effective way to learn language.
    It can link some information available that wants to be
    opened by the users without starting from the first
    document sequentially, in other word, the users can
    choose any information of their own interest non-sequentially.
    Hypertext links provide unique benefits to hypertext readers
    believe that hypertext links help readers make connections,
    generate novel associations, facilitate collaboration, assure
    future orientation, and enhance learning.
