An efficient model of hyper textual authoring processes and guidelines for electronic multi-media educational and scientific resources’ development in Philology is being discussed. The model was successfully applied for construction of the interactive hyper-media e-learning Web-resource “Russian Dialectal Phonetics”. The electronic public educational and research resource in Russian Dialectology is the first and unique one fully based on SCORM ideology. Basic authoring algorithms were adopted from the object-oriented programming (OOP) and Rapid Application Design (RAD) ideology and practice for application. The e-course comprises two major components: a theoretical overview and practical sections (on-line self-tests, exercises). An interactive glossary of linguistic and other special terms is also appended through the network of hyperlinks. As essential multi- and hypermedia product the course comprises texts, image illustrations (dialect maps included), authentic dialectal spoken language recordings from the archive of dialectological expeditions.
