As the present culture becomes more and more graphic in information presentation, education now uses hypermedia to encourage students to acquire information and to construct knowledge. Teachers, trained in the traditional text methods, need to expand their teaching not only to include the new ways of presenting information using text, graphics, sound, and animation, but also to foster learning in a non-linear environment. The Master of Arts in Educational Technology at New Jersey City University has as one of its required core courses: Hypermedia Across the Curriculum. This course up until Fall 1998 semester had always been taught in-person, because the many technological skills seemed too complicated to learn through an asynchronous course. However, in the Fall 1998 semester, the course was offered on-line. This paper will: a) discuss the differences between teaching/learning hypermedia in-person and on-line, b) preview the web site of the course to show how the hypermedia technological skills were transferred to the web medium, and c) assess the learning through specific examples created by the participants in the course.
