[snip] "Video is great for some types of communication, such as showing you
how to do something that's confusing to write about (a few months back
there was an argument about documenting dance steps: maybe you could
describe it in words or notation, but most people would understand a
whole lot quicker if you just showed them a video of it). But video is
not an alternative to text. It has different strengths and weaknesses."

Hi all, SiberLogic has just released a new white paper on multimedia
courseware development that is relevant to this topic.

Per previous posts, multimedia technology offers considerable potential for
education -- content such as sound, video, and interactive components can be
added to text and regular graphics for an engaging and retentive learning
environment. But multimedia courseware development costs can be high,
especially for rapidly-changing sectors such as high tech.

This white paper proposes an economically efficient methodology for
multimedia courseware production, using XML content management and single
sourcing to reuse components, manage costs, and improve quality.

You can download "Developing interactive courseware" at I think most of you have a
Visitor ID already but, if not, you'll need to take a moment to register...

Best regards,
