ACCESSING HYPERMEDIA SYSTEMS EFECTIVENESS IN LEARNING CONTEXTS

Alexander Macena da Silva, Silvina Santana

Abstract

Hypermedia systems are increasingly being used in teaching/learning environments. Biomec is a hypermedia system that has got, as it main goal, the interrelation of concepts coming from Sports and Basic Mechanics, just as it is intended in an area of knowledge denominated Physics of Sports. The final objective of Biomec is to increase the efficiency of the learning processes in this area of study. The system development has been grounded in learning theories, with contents being organized according to the theory of Ausubel (1968) and the theory of cognitive flexibility (Spiro et al., 1992). Apparently, a hypermedia system like Biomec is suitable to the teaching/learning of Physical Education. However, only an astringent evaluation, with its target public, can assert what are its real benefits. This work presents a methodology for the evaluation and improvement of this kind of systems.
