2 Defining a ProjectSeveral steps are required to define a multimedia project. They are:Meeting with the client to determine the project’s budget and deadlineDetermining the project’s overall purpose and specific objectivesDefining the audience who will use or view the applicationDetermining how the application will be deliveredDetermining the technical and content requirements
3 Project Design PhaseAfter the team has analyzed the application’s objectives, audience, and requirements, the project enters the design phase.
4 What is a project plan?A project plan generally specifies the project’s scope, its personnel and other resource requirements, its schedule, and its budget.
5 Defining Project Scope The team sets priorities and collaborates about:The application’s contentThe application’s sizeThe hardware and software it will involve
6 Defining the Project Schedule With input from the team, the project manager draws up a schedule for developing the application.
7 Designing the User Interface The user interface designer creates a navigation map. Navigation schemes can be:LinearHierarchicalNonlinearComposite
8 Developing an Application Once the project plan is approved, the team begins creating the application. This includes:Written contentAudio and visual contentDocumentationProductionTesting
9 Creating Application Content This includes:Creating the text for the applicationLocating, creating, and editing the audio and visual components of the applicationCreating instructions for using the application
10 Producing the Application Following the user interface design, text, sounds, and images are incorporated into pages or screen displays
11 Testing the Application The application is tested to ensure that the sections work together correctly.Alpha testing involves testing sections as the producer finishes.When all sections are complete, the entire application is tested.A large application may also be beta tested.
