PC-based Multimedia: An Opportunity to Redesign the Learning Process

Abstract

Enhancements to the educational process in terms of effectiveness, efficiency, and presentation flexibility are of interest. Recent developments in PC-based multimedia provides the capability to address the educational process in new and innovative ways. This presentation will discuss the components of the traditional educational process and propose a new process. The new educational process demonstrates how today's multimedia technology can be used with personal computers to provide more flexibility and time for educators to expand the content of their courses. In addition to the new educational process, a software program, "Teacher 2000", developed to illustrate how lectures can be conducted, will be presented. Teacher 2000 includes the necessary functionality to use text, graphics, still video, animation, hypertext, and motion video in achieving the new educational paradigm.
