Abstract

In hypermedia environments, it is important for students to have metacognitive skills while planning, monitoring and evaluating the learning process, since they have more responsibility compared to the traditional learning process. One of the metacognitive acitivities which could be integrated into web-based learning environments is reflective prompts which support students in effective learning by enabling them to think about their own learning process and to become aware of how they accomplish a task. This article presents design of a goal-based educational hypermedia environment, which aims at supporting students’ metacognition by reflective prompts. In the study, the development stages of the learning environment are explained and then, the general characteristics of the system along with its flow cycle are presented. In addition, the technologies used are summarized through discussing the usages of reflective prompts and other metacognitive tools in the environment.
