In Education, multimedia systems are media combinations, such combinations used for instructional purposes. the systems involves integrating each medium (like audio, video, etc.) and medium format into a structured, systematic presentation.
The system is so designed that it serve to complement the rest of the instructional process. The system has several advantages: It is adaptable to the learning situation: its multisensory character stimulates learning. Note that modern people continue to learn through the many stimuli created by news paper, books, radio, television, etc..
A. The sound-slide combination
Slide projection of prepared picture materials can be combined with narration, music and sound effects for a multimedia system. Instead of slides, filmstrips can also be combined with narrative and sound. In the sound slide presentation you can use the automatic change-of-slide capabilities of the slide projector. Manual operation can also be done using the script as a guide.
How To’s in developing a sound slide presentation
Step 1 Analyze your audience Set learning objectives Do the research for the text of your presentation Write the narrative
Step 2 Prepare script card (index of plain ¼ cutouts sheets) Incorporate portions of text and suggested visual on each card Step 3 Do the slide photograpic work (using graphic, book pictures or live objects to support your text)
Step 4 Put process and selected slides sequentially on your slide tray following your narrative text. Pre-tape narrative with music, sound effects. Play produce audio narrative with slides on screen.
B. MULTI-IMAGE SYSTEMS
Multi-image presentation is also referred to as multi-screen presentations. The system uses two or more separate images, usually projected simultaneously in a presentation. Most often, the images are projected from two or more slide projector, although overhead transparencies, filmstrips or motion pictures may also be used for simultaneous multi-image effect on the
It is obvious that multi-image presentations require more preparation. It may also serve to confuse rather than serve the learning process. However, the system can be valuable in achieving impactful learning, especially when the motivational objective is set in the learning situation.
APPLICATIONS OF MULTI-IMAGE SYSTEMS
The system can be used for a variety of instructional situation: Presenting an overview or long-range view of a visual while another presents a closeup. The images may be used to do a comparison or to present a contrast. “Before” and “After” shots as in the case of a process (making of an art work, life cycle, etc.)
Drawn/ graphic illustration and live photo of a person/ object can be shown for contrast. Detailed sequences on swimming, diving, hitting a golf ball, etc. Provide mood through visual background for listening to musical and choral works, plays and readings.
The Interactive Video, also described in an earlier chapter, taps the capabilities of instructional television and computerassisted instruction. It is an instructional delivery system in which recorded video material is presented under computer control to viewers who see and hear pictures and sounds, and also make active responses.
The heart of an interactive video system is a computer which provides the “intelligence” And interactivity requirement for interactive video. The computer commands the video player to present audio and/ or video information, wait for the learner’s response, and branch to the appropriate point in the instructional program.
