Abstract

This paper discusses the use of hypermedia as a mainstream instructional tool and what this use means for the success of all learners. Hypermedia research has not provided evidence of superiority to other instructional media. This research has, however, indicated that learner characteristics play a significant role in achievement in these new environments. Epistemological beliefs and self-regulatory skills have been demonstrated to be essential determiners of success in traditional learning environments. These beliefs and skills may be especially crucial to learning in cyberspace. This paper reviews relevant research from the educational psychology and hypermedia literature and discusses implications for the delivery of hypermedia instruction. Future research opportunities are described.
