The Plan: "Hypertext Studios"
(Salvo's Story)

The big payoff to the hypertext studio approach, as I see it, is that students will get exposed to a variety of learning strategies and styles. They'll be limited in number (7? 12? 20? who knows?). And more importantly, there will be ways of correlating usage statistics with learning styles and with writing patterns. It's a textbook, sure, but it's also a research engine.

And the concept will repel most traditional writing teachers. Who will buy it? But isn't that what was said about DIWE in the late 1980s and early 1990s (until the strength of Web-based applications drove it into the hands of a corporate buyout)?

So what's the next step?
