MetadataShow full item record
Multimedia technologies are becoming more common in online education, and student response to materials presented in ways other than text is overwhelmingly positive. Multimedia presentations using synchronized audio, video, and slides can be quickly and easily created for a variety of uses, including introducing courses, explaining difficult concepts, and including supplemental material. Targeting these short (three–five minute) presentations to a single problem or example maximizes viewership while also effectively supplementing or clarifying course material. Software packages to create and publish these presentations are discussed along with specific examples of targeted presentations.
