Interactive Multimedia

WHAT is Interactive Multimedia?

Multimedia means using more than one medium-or way-to communicate. Talking while gesturing is multimedia. Writing something on a blackboard while explaining it is multimedia. A professor lecturing while showing slides-that's multimedia. Interactive means the communication is two-way, like a good back-and-forth conversation, or a teacher reacting to comments and questions from students.

An interactive multimedia program is a computer program that reacts to the person using it-a conversation between you and the machine. You can choose to skip a subject if you want, or have it explained in greater detail, or in a different way, or repeat it till you understand. Of course, the interactive choices aren't as limitless as when you talk to another person, but the computer never runs out of patience, which is a big advantage.

In reacting to you, the computer has a number of ways to communicate. These multiple mediums, or mutimedia, are: audio, video, graphics, photos, and text. The multimedia computer can react by talking to you, playing music and other sounds, showing videos, drawings, and photos, or by displaying enormous amounts of text.

Unlike a lecture, a movie, a videotape, or even a book-which are all basically passive experiences-an interactive multimedia program expects the user to be actively involved. You determine what you see and hear and when you see and hear it. If you don't understand a particular subject, you can choose to experience it again, to see a different explanation of the same thing, or to jump to another part of the program altogether. If you're not interested in one part of the program, you can skip it. If you want more in-depth information about a particular subject you can ask for it.
