The ExploraGraph interface was designed to facilitate interaction in the context of distant learning. It was developed as an alternative to simple web interaction, in order to increase flexibility, visibility, and structure in the learning environment. It may be used as a front end to existing courses on the web. The ExploraGraph Navigator makes it possible to navigate through conceptual graphs with automatic arrangement of elements, zoom and "fish eye" effects. Each node of the graph may have a description attached to it and may give direct access to an application, a document or an Internet site. Graphic structures may thus be used to represent the organization of tools, activities, concepts or documents. The Navigator offers each user a tool to specify his goals and the system can support him, using multiple modalities: Hypertext, graphical cues (Lee & Lehman, 1993), Ms Agents avatars, voice, visual demonstrations and force feedback guiding.
