Multimedia in the Classroom: Recollections after Two Years.
Anderson, Stephen T., Sr.
This paper describes one educator's experience with creating multimedia presentation materials for a college computer literacy class. The paper discusses: selecting software--the decision between authoring software and presentation software; selecting hardware--what type of computer systems to select, and issues when classrooms are equipped with different computer systems; deciding in what type of course to test the new multimedia system; developing multimedia instruction that is effective without being distracting; maintenance and difficulties in implementation; student reaction; and other uses for multimedia within the school such as a multimedia library map, presentations for guests, and library tutorials. The significant time spent learning how to develop and implement multimedia instruction has been rewarded with useful and effective teaching materials, tutorials used on campus, and workshops which help defray conference costs and enable instructors to stay current with other colleges and universities' use of multimedia and the Internet.
