Concisely defined, "streaming media" is moving video and/or audio transmitted over the Internet for immediate viewing/listening by an end user. However, at Saint Francis University's Center of Excellence for Remote and Medically Under-Served Areas (CERMUSA), streaming media is approached from a broader perspective. The working definition includes a wide range of visual electronic multimedia that can be transmitted across the Internet for viewing in real time or saved as a file for later viewing. While downloading and saving a media file for later play is not, strictly speaking, a form of streaming, that method is included in the discussion of multimedia content used in education.
