    ABSTRACT: The World-Wide Web has the potential to support education through access to extensive and encyclopedic materials. The materials must be tailored and contextualized to promote the instructional goals. To provide this contextualization, we have applied the concept of a guided path, an ordered list of pages independent of the existing Web structure. Besides creating the structure, a teacher may annotate the individual pages of a path to provide transition, emphasis, and missing explanation. In addition, some limited interactivity and control over the display of remote information is possible in our prototype path server. This prototype, called Walden's Paths, works with existing Web browsers and servers allowing its integration into an educational setting with existing hardware and software.

    ABSTRACT: Walden's Paths applies the concept of hypertextual paths to the World-Wide Web. Walden's Paths is being developed for use in the K--12 school environment. The heterogeneity of the Web coupled with the desirability of supporting the teacher-student relationship make this an interesting and challenging project. We describe the Walden's Paths implementation, discuss the elements that affected its design and architecture, and report on our experiences with the system in use.
