Multimedia Modules: A Scripted Approach to Hands-On Training
Thursday, January 1, 2004
Digital multimedia—audio, video, graphics, presentations, and interactive Web sites—has the potential for dramatic new techniques in teaching and learning. At the University of Minnesota, Morris, our faculty members and elementary/secondary education students have been quick to recognize multimedia's potential and are eager to use such tools. From a technical support point of view, however, training an individual to use multimedia applications can be time-consuming and difficult. Intensive, one-on-one help consumes significant staff hours and is often required just to get one enthusiastic professor (with many questions) up and running on the simplest multimedia application.
