Prerequisite Skills

To take this class, you should have intermediate computer skills and familiarity with using the Internet. This class is not a "how-to"  course (other classes may be available that focus on learning to use a scanner, digital camera, etc.). Instead, this class focuses on integration -- designing multimedia projects and lessons that will engage students in authentic learning experiences. Specifically, the following skills are recommended before registering for this class:

  • Word processing
  • Accessing Web pages with a browser such as Safari or Internet Explorer
  • Familiarity with a multimedia software program, such as PowerPoint or an HTML editor (DreamWeaver, etc.).
  • Scanning or downloading images from the Internet

Realizing that you and your students may not have ready access to a wealth of multimedia hardware and software, this course only requires one multimedia "product" -- your final project. In other words, if you have a scanner in your classroom, but do not have access to a digital video camera, your final project can incorporate scanned images, rather than digital movies.
