What is Interactive Multimedia?
Interactive Multimedia is seamless digital integration of text, graphics, animation, audio, still images and motion video in a way that provides individual users with high levels of control and interaction. User determines what content is delivered, when it is delivered and how.
Types of Presentations
Linear –> plays from some start position to some end position with little or no intervention Just like this lecture (above).
Hierarchical –> user has choice (above), but topics can be divided into specific topics.
Non linear –> Interactive multimedia (above) allows the viewer to jump around the material by interacting with it-It has no enforced hierarchy– user can move freely.
Composite – incorporates parts of all the above methods.
