Review: 

Impediments to use of visualization: platform dependence (Windows, X11); maintenance: even moderate download, installation or maintainance effort is too much; lack of integrated resources: finding, gathering, incorporating resources too much work and not worth the time. Solution: CD containing a “textbook'' with active learning components, used by both teacher and learner, based on standard WWW techniques. Features and guidelines for hypertextbooks for the Web: platform independent; do not require special plugins; self contained (no external links to required material, independent of Internet connection; easy dissemination, e.g. on CD; seamless presentation - integrative instead of new pop-up windows; support different learning needs; effective use of MM. Incorporates 3 levels following skiing notations: Green square = easy, blue circle = intermediate; black diamond(s) = expert.
