In the chapters which follow, we suggest that we need to recognize and effectively engage with the complex ways in which language, broader social and cultural contexts and technologies interact in online environments, and to foreground the social and linguistic practices involved in the use of electronic technologies in higher education. Our perspective, with its particular focus on texts and the process of meaning-making, offers an examination of the social and cultural practices implicated in any learning context and which, we believe, established e-learning pedagogies have so far failed to address.

In the trials of this system it was found that although students found the program motivating and there was improvement in the referencing practices of some students, many of them continued to approach the program by seeking a ‘correct’ linear path through the material, rather than by engaging in open exploration of the hypertextual environment, a reversion to a more conventional ‘instructional’ paradigm.

Jonassen et al. 0) The manifesto argued that computer technologies enable learners to experience environments that reflect the informational complexities of the real world, and to engage with problems that are meaningful in this context. In this way they can be helped to generate their own knowledge base which is relevant to the external world, but which is personal, individualistic and can be shared and renegotiated with others.
