Introduction to Multimedia

posted Nov 24, 2011, 2:29 PM by Eddie Woo
I can't think of a better introduction to this topic than the excursion we had yesterday. So let's launch into our first HSC 'option topic': multimedia!
  1. What is the basic definition of a medium? Therefore, define the term multimedia.
  2. What are the 5 basic kinds of media?
  3. For each of the media types:
    • List out its peculiar features and strengths.
    • Describe some of its limitations and drawbacks.
    • What particular purpose is it suited to, and why?
  4. Research cel animation. How was this effect created in the pre-computer age?
  5. For homework, observe all the multimedia around you over the weekend. List them (with a brief description) and then discuss (i.e. the HSC keyword) the statement:
    "We are better off living in our multimedia-saturated society."
