ABSTRACTThe term hypertext as noted in this paper is used to designate a joining of texts and the electronic links that unite them. Closely related to the term, the notion of hypermedia implies the use of hypertext by means of integrating visual information with sound, animation and other types of data. Flexible navigation in the Internet, as well as in local systems resulting from the use of these resources, allows the user to simples searches and at the same time being safe in the knowledge that things will not be lost in hyperspace.
Hypertext has offered a new alternative for teaching, although one of the fundamental problems is the need to become totally familiar with computer tools such as “html” in which such text is written. In order that this type of informatics is incorporated into the range of education delivery systems, interested teachers will require specific training in the production of didactic material for use via the computer.
