Hypermedia systems represent data as a network of nodes, interconnected by links. The information embodied within the nodes can be accessed by means of navigation along the links, whereby a user’s current position in the information space determines which information can be accessed in the next navigation step. This property of navigational data access raises hypermedia systems as utterly suitable to support user-driven exploration and learning. The user autonomously determines the way in which he or she will delve into the information, instead of being confined to the rigid “linear” structure of, for example, pages in a book.
