This paper discusses some problems encountered in hypermedia-based collaboration and reuse, and presents a conceptual framework to resolve these problems. Three suggestions are made based on the discussion: 1) extra organizational structures are necessary in shared hypermedia to support collaborative interactions; 2) an abstract schema is a key to capture the dynamic nature of the shared hypermedia; 3) an integration of the schema evolution approach and the workflow approach is recommended for an open system hypermedia teamwork support. The whole authoring environment is divided into several component spaces with particular respect to the Dexter Hypertext Reference Model. Not only can this separation reduce the overall complexity of working within such an environment, but it also conforms more closely with human cognitive needs in collaborative authoring and reuse activities.
