The e-book (www.design-educacao-tecnologia.com) is a support for teaching Hypermedia Design, which constitutes a didactic material to support teaching and research activities for the Design area. The book will gather issues about Design, Education and Hypermedia aimed at offering resources to enhance the use of multiple languages that converge in hypermedia environments, their applicability, techniques and methods in light of Design in Situations of Teaching-Learning. This paper is divided into five parts: the first part introduce the paper subject, the second part shows the e-book Design, Education and Technology, the third part presents the use of this hypermedia e-book as a pedagogical tool in a graduation course in Design, some of the results developed by the students, the fourth part presents the main questions observed about this digital environment and the last part is the conclusion.
