Information frames: a new multimedia approach to Web-based learning of biology and medicine.

Author information

Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Stanford University, California 94305, USA.


Presentation of content in hyperlinked multimedia formats for teaching has failed using the computer's power of navigation through rich visual and auditory information. We have developed "Information Frames", an authoring tool in hypertext markup language (html) format, that allows easy utilization by technology-challenged teachers and professors, and attracts students because of interactive, design-based learning. An Information Frame contains a definition, explanation and illustration of a single concept. Topics are provided with hyperlinks to other Information Frames having related concepts that may provide prerequisite knowledge, or may raise the concept to a more integrative level. A graphical view of the linked-Information Frames presents a Concept Map of the overall topic.
