The semantic Web initiates new, high level access schemes to online content and applications. One area of superior need for a redefined content exploration is given by on-line educational applications and their concepts of interactivity in the framework of open hypermedia systems. In the present paper we discuss aspects and opportunities of gaining interactivity schemes from semantic notions of components. A transition from standard educational annotation to semantic statements of hyperlinks is

Our semantic hyperlink implementation is based on the more general Multimedia Information Repository MIR, an open hypermedia system supporting the standards XML, Corba and JNDI.
