2 Introduction Multimedia improves and enhances the user’s experience anywhere that interaction with a computer is required. Whether in a presentation or report, the major benefits of using multimedia are that statistically the user is likely to: Be more interested Be attentive for longer Remember what was seen for longer This presentation provides an overview of multimedia, including: Text content Linking frames Creating sound Testing completed presentations Next >

3 Question 1 Presentations that contain multimedia are more likely to be remembered for longer than presentations that do not contain multimedia. Is this true or false? Answer True or False. Correct answer = True

4 Design When creating multimedia, the level of skill
and effort applied in the design stage is what determines the end product’s quality. The design stage is where you start to draw together your skills in: Graphics Video Music Information management During the design stage, keep in mind that your multimedia production should, on completion, be: Easy to navigate and read Error free and factually correct Next >

5 Question 2 Which of the following should NOT be expected of a multimedia presentation? A) It should be error free B) It should be facually correct Correct answer = C C) It should contain at least one video D) It should be easy to navigate

6 Text Of the elements in any multimedia presentation, the text content is one of the most important. Words quickly and accurately provide the user with information in as little or as much detail as necessary. Text is far less difficult for the user to follow than any combination of sound and images and can be used for: Titles Menus Content Navigation Selecting an appropriate font and text content for a multimedia presentation requires planning, skill in writing, and a flair for design. Next >

7 Text When choosing the font and content for a
presentation, there are various important factors to bear in mind: Legibility - make sure the font is easy to read or there is no point using it Effect - using many different fonts together can be confusing or irritating Visual - do not cram text onto the screen, overcrowding detracts from your message Color - use various colors to enhance the work, while exercising restraint It is important that the font size, color, and style, along with the text content, matches the intended style of the presentation. Next >

8 Question 3 It is essential that the font for content and titles is the same. Is this true or false? Answer True or False. Correct answer = False

9 Question 4 Which of the following statements about the font to be used in a multimedia presentation is correct? A) The font should never use just one color B) The font should always use a range of sizes Correct answer = C C) The font should be legible D) The font should always use underlining to emphasize words

10 Graphics There are many software packages available for manipulating graphics. Graphics are created in various image file types, the most commonly used being: JPEG GIF BMP As a general rule, it is best to use: GIF file format for graphic images - icons, logos and buttons JPEG for photographic images Next >

11 Question 5 The best file format for photographic images is usually JPEG. Is this true or false? Answer True or False. Correct answer = True

12 Audio Audio or sound files can make a huge difference to a multimedia presentation by: Enhancing its professionalism Offering an alternative information delivery method Increasing its entertainment value There are various audio file types, the most common being: WAV AVI MP3 Care should be taken with all content as file sizes can be large and to hear them requires specialized software. Next >

13 Question 6 Which of the following could be a problem when incorporating sound into presentations? A) Sound files tend to be large B) Sound files can increase the entertainment value of the presentation Correct answer = A C) Sound files make a presentation appear more professional D) Sound files can not include music

14 Movies When adding a movie to a presentations,
generally you will use either: Animations Video clips Animation includes any movement including: Flashing on and off Movement around the screen Shrinking and growing Video, whether from a video camera or web cam, is inserted in clips, which are processed using specialized software. There are various file types used for movies, and maintaining small file size is also important. Next >

15 Creating Movies When creating presentation movies, software
packages vary, but generally most follow the traditional animation building concepts of: Layers - these build the movie as a series of graphics, one on top of the other, in transparent layers Keyframes - are the parts of an animation where something important happens, for example, a character waving or winking Tweening - is where the software creates frames automatically between the keyframes, saving time There are many other steps in creating animation, depending not only on the format, but also the software and hardware available. Next >

16 Question 7 Which of the following is NOT a concept concerned with creating animations? A) Tweening B) Layering Correct answer = C C) Clipping D) Keyframes

17 Movie Frames A movie frame is one picture in a series of
pictures that when played together give the impression of motion or animation. Frame-by-frame animating is done by creating a new image for each frame of a finished animation. Each picture looks slightly different from the last, and when put into a movie format, they combine to give an illusion of movement. Frame rate is the number of pictures needed per second to make this movement smooth and realistic. Most software has a frame rate of 8 to 12, whereas cinematic movies use 24. Next >

18 Question 8 What is the frame rate, in frames per second, for movie projection? Enter your answer and press Send. Correct answer = 24

19 Linking Screens (slides) of a Presentation
Most multimedia projects can best be described as a body of information through which the user navigates. The most common way they do this is through intuitive, universally recognized actions, collectively known as click to act functionality, which includes: Text links - words linking to topics or different screens Graphical links - images linking to topics or screens Buttons - dedicated links to topics or screens Next >

20 Special Effects There are many effects that can be applied to your multimedia presentation, depending on the software used to build it. Effects determine how items appear on the screen. As well as animations and movies, these effects can include: Transition effects - the way screen pages change Text and graphic effects - these can slide in and out of view, fade, shrink and grow, perhaps even explode The special effects available depend on the software used to create a multimedia presentation and the system on which it is to be viewed. Next >

21 Testing The golden rule when testing any project,
multimedia or otherwise, is as follows… test it, then test it, then test it again!! Testing should cover the following: Functionality - make sure the project does what it is supposed to Usability - check that the navigation works and is easy to use Accuracy - verify that the content is factually and legally correct Next >

22 Question 9 Which feature is NOT covered in a testing schedule?
A) Functionality B) Usability Correct answer = D C) Accuracy D) Costing

23 Demonstrating Multimedia
Giving a trial demonstration of your presentation to a friend or colleague is very important in making sure that: All equipment (software and hardware) is working properly Content will be understood fully by the audience Estimated running time is accurate Everything plays properly and in the correct order Next >

24 Summary When developed properly, presentations can be exciting, interesting and informative multimedia displays. Good presentations, enlivened by animation and sound, are recognized to enhance the experience of the audience. This presentation provided an overview of: Movies Linking screens (slides) Text Sound Demonstrating End >
