Title
¬The myth of navigating in hypertext : how a 'bandwagon' has lost its course!
Source
Journal of educational multimedia and hypermedia. 3(1994) nos.3/4, S.235-249

Abstract
Commercially available applications of hypertext are based upon the premise of information 'nodes' being connected by 'links'. This manner of presenting information has been described in terms of 'electronic space'. Some confusion has arisen from an ambiguous use of the term 'space'. Much of the research into navigation has unquestioning adopted a physical metaphor, assuming that users navigate through this as they would in 3 dimensional space. Disorientation is the by product of poor interface desing, and is not a feature of hypertext. Users become 'lost' because it is unclear what actions they can perform. System designers should consider hypertext as a problem space, rather than a physical space
