Unit 3.1 Multimedia Basics
Let's take a quick glance at the key multimedia elements. Each of these elements will be shown in greater depth, but this should give you a feel for the most common elements used in multimedia applications. Multimedia refers to the creation of a multi sensory experience to convey messages and ideas. To create this multisensory experience, different multimedia elements are used. The key elements used in most multimedia applications include text, graphics, animation, sound, and video. Add a participatory environment and you have interactive multimedia. Keep in mind that even the most awe-inspiring multimedia presentation incorporating all of these elements is wasted if it doesn't also include content and purpose. It takes just the right combination of elements to portray and illustrate a message effectively.
