This paper is a review of literature on learner disorientation in hypermedia learning environments. The author believes that an understanding of the disorientation issues on the hypermedia learning environment will help designers, instructors and learners from at all levels not only to design more efficient learning environments to meet users' need but also to avoid learner feel lost and cognitive load. Presenting information in a linear way, one page after another, might be unsuitable for every learner. Hypermedia has unique characteristics that give users freedom to navigate through provided information. While hypermedia has many potential advantages, there are some potential problems that have been considered. Disorientation is one of the main issues in hypermedia learning environments. The author reviews the being lost problem in electronic learning environments from designers and users perspective.
