activity4.2 Investigating Hyperlinks

 

Visit the following page on Wikipedia about hyperlinks: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperlink

Look at how the different hyperlinks are used. Hyperlinks for navigation around the site are on one side of the page. The article contains lots of links to other articles within the site. Why do you think it does that? Does the page include external links to outside pages? There are also hyperlinks to different points within the same page, why do you think this is necessary?

Compare this site to a news site such as the BBC news site at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/. Open up and examine a news article. How are hyperlinks used differently? Does the article itself contain any hyperlinks? Discuss your findings with a partner. Annotate some screenshots and save them as evidence.
