Abstract
The development of software and network technology has given enormous possibilities to teaching and learning. At least, it is widely believed that there is a great potential. In practice, it is not so clear how these possibilities should be used. An experiment in the field of mathematics at university level is reported: philosophy, planning principles, realization, future. The core of the experiment is a study package based on hypertext, web browsers and computer algebra systems.
