Abstract

The transactions that take place among readers, literary hypertext, and the learning context of cyberspace were investigated. The transactions were characterized and determined through text coding of multiple and various student-produced texts. The results indicated four major categories of transactions occurring among readers, literary hypertexts, and the context. These categories are (a) Inquiring and Clarifying Task Knowledge, (b) Making Connections and Activating Prior Knowledge, (c) Engagement, and (d) Elaborating and Making Further Connections. While the findings appear to be similar to other transactions known to take place among readers, texts, and contexts, the findings of this study are unique to reading of hypertext situated in cyberspace.
