PINHEIRO, Regina Cláudia and ARAUJO, Júlio. Hypertextual literacy: for its concept analysis and redefinition. Rev. bras. linguist. apl. [online]. 2012, vol.12, n.4, pp. 811-834. Epub Aug 14, 2012. ISSN 1984-6398. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1984-63982012005000002.
This paper brings a discussion about the emergence of a concept of hypertextual analysis, which starts with the description of the literacy practices carried out by subjects while designing teaching materials for online education. From the ideas about hypertextual literacy in Bolter (1998), and multiple literacies in Semalli (2001), we apply a methodology defined as a case study in which we followed the steps in the elaboration of teaching materials for online education. The results show that, in order to carry out practices in hypertextual literacy, multiple literacies must be intertwined by the users, such as the traditional, visual, computing and informational literacies. In this light, the concept of hypertextual literacy must be considered as a higher category which is realized from the connection between multiple literacies.
