This paper presents an overview of HyperLecture, a hypertextual, gesturally-controlled lecture presentation system originally designed for teaching introductory computer programming. HyperLecture provides genuinely user-friendly mechanisms with which a presenter can quickly produce linear and non-linear presentations, hard-copy hand-outs, audio and textual annotations, complete self-driving interactive tutorials and graphical programming code simulations.
