The media of printed books and hypertext both provide significant benefits to learners. Printed books are a physical form that signify authority and learners feel comfortable interacting with, while hypertext provides learner control and associative benefits that aid the learner in the knowledge construction process. The two technologies have been seen as competitive, the book embodying the ideals of the past and the physical learning environment, and learning through hypertext media being the way forward utilising technology. The premise of this paper is that by applying hypertext methods to a printed book the distinct advantages of both media can be utilised by the learner. This paper considers research concerning both the advantages and disadvantages of each media, the support for hypertext in education provided by Constructivist Learning Theory and Cognitive Flexibility Theory. Finally presenting a prototype for a hypertext printed book as a concept that combines the distinct benefits of both media.
