Abstract

This study investigates the effect of hypermedia presentation, its activity relevance and the interactions between the two on peak experience. The results suggested that the activity content has major influences on motivation but presentation is a double-edge sword. Hypermedia presentation adds appeals to instructions that motivate students if they are used appropriately. When the content relevance is complicated, complex presentations can be distracting. Consequently, hypermedia elements should be used sparingly at the beginning of a lesson when challenges are high and students are unfamiliar with the material. As the lesson progresses it could be used gradually as the content challenges are reduced.
