Concept mapping is a powerful technique that allows learners to gain a better overview and understanding of structural characteristics of a knowledge domain. Furthermore, the structural correspondence between concept maps and hypermedia enables one to use concept mapping as a hypermedia design technique. Creating concept maps is an intellectual process, and as such may very well be influenced by individual cognitive characteristics. In this research the creation of concept maps is correlated with the cognitive styles identified by Pask. Consequences for a new hypermedia design methodology are drawn. More advanced concept mapping tools are identified.
