JUNQUEIRA, Eduardo S. Hypermodal content to learning: student's contextualized use. Educ. rev. [online]. 2010, vol.26, n.3, pp. 371-386. ISSN 0102-4698. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-46982010000300019.
The analysis of the use of hypermodal artifacts and content by distance learning students indicated two key elements. Content structure and cohesion, estab lished by stable semiotic categories of hypermodal artifact's analysis, indicated that they have not determined the student's use. Guided by cultural elements and their own goals, students established communicative practices that extrapolated the print/digital dichoto my. The students printed the online content and established the centrality of the print ing material for their learning without disregarding hypermodal content. From the print ing material, they used content as "webs" and developed paths as they coherently navi gated and read the materials. The study indicates the need to establish flexible, open to participation processes of content design aimed at the student's participation to produce more interactive and democratic content for the production of learning.
