This manual outlines a general procedure for deciding whether or not a multimedia package should be adapted or repackaged to meet local needs, reviews both general and specific factors to be considered in repackaging materials, describes the process of repackaging, and outlines procedures for the try-out, evaluation, and renewal of repackaged material. Aids for the user include a 10-item checklist identifying key issues to be considered in the initial decision as to whether to repackage, and an application of this procedure to a social studies package for grade 2; discussions of such general factors as the situation, special problems of disadvantaged learners, personal characteristics of teachers, financial limitation on resources, and professional support services; and a review of specific factors concerned with objectives and content, media selection, production, utilization, and distribution and evaluation. Guidelines for the process of repackaging include a checklist for the diagnosis of changes needed, a specifications table for repackaging, a table showing potential media substitutions, production hints, and a production plan.
