Why Use Multimedia?
Use any combination of text, images, video, animation, music, and/or voice narration to add creativity and interactivity to an assignment. You can add audio or video to a PowerPoint presentation, or create a screencast (recording and narration of your actions on a computer screen). You can present an argument through podcasting, or record an interview with someone else as an information source.
Before starting a project, consider the following:
Audience: Who is your audience? Are you aiming to teach or entertain them?
Time: When is the project due, and how much time do you have to figure out the software or technology needed? Is there a time limit on how long or short the recording should be?
