Hypermedia materials have great potential in teaching but it is unclear how university geography courses will adapt to the new technology and evolve. We have used a two-pronged approach that places course-specific materials into an integrated hypermedia resource connected to external sources that complement and extend the content. This strategy provides a path for traditional course materials to give access to the enormous resources available on the Worldwide Web. The results of a student survey indicate that the hypermedia materials are a helpful addition for students, especially to support individual learning strategies.
