|Never send postmodern philosophers of education to do a teacherís job.|
Dwight and Garrison take two simple, straightforward operational techniques and boot them so far into the educationese stratosphere that their utility is lost to sight.
Hypertext: A computer-based text retrieval system that enables a user to access particular locations in webpages or other electronic documents by clicking on links within specific webpages or documents.
Hypermedia: A computer-based information retrieval system that enables a user to gain or provide access to texts, audio and video recordings, photographs, and computer graphics related to a particular subject.
The use of these retrieval systems for instructional purposes, or for any other purpose, does not entail any of the verbiage that Dwight and Garrison pile on.
Where is Occamís Razor when we really need it?
