The Object-Oriented Hypermedia Design Model (OOHDM)

What is The Object-Oriented Hypermedia Design Model (OOHDM)?

The Object-Oriented Hypermedia Design Model (OOHDM) is a design methodology for creating hypermedia systems, which are systems that use hyperlinks to connect multimedia content. OOHDM is based on object-oriented design principles and is intended to help designers create user-friendly and efficient hypermedia systems.

OOHDM consists of four main phases: analysis, design, implementation, and evaluation. During the analysis phase, designers identify the goals and requirements of the system, as well as the users and their needs. In the design phase, designers create a detailed design of the system, including the navigation structure, user interface, and content organization. The implementation phase involves building the system according to the design, and the evaluation phase involves testing and refining the system to ensure it meets the user needs and goals.

OOHDM emphasizes the importance of user-centered design and includes guidelines for creating intuitive and efficient navigation structures, as well as for organizing and presenting content in a way that is meaningful and useful to users.

OOHDM has been widely used in the development of hypermedia systems such as websites, online learning platforms, and digital libraries.
