In this paper, we describe an approach to academic teaching in computer science using storytelling as a means for background research to hypermedia and virtual reality topics. It is shown that narrative activity within the context of a Hypermedia Novel related to educational content can enhance motivation for self- conducted learning and in parallel lead to an edutainment system of its own. The narrative practice and background research as well as the resulting product can supplement lecture material with comparable success to traditional academic teaching approaches.
