Designing multimedia resources for design and technology

  • Richard Tuffnell Middlesex University


Multimedia resources are beginning to play an important role in the teaching and learning process. Yet the effect and impact which they have is poorly understood and principally anecdotal. Questions need to be asked concerning their use and value especially in a subject such as design and technology which is essentially practical in nature. Reliable answers can only be given if resources are designed specifically for a practical environment. This article examines a range of key issues and provides the rationale and thinking behind a series of CD-ROMs which might help provide these answers.
