Let’s take a look at some examples of images, video and audio Digital photographs, icons, scanned materials, maps, charts & graphs are some examples of ‘still image’ digital media Video and motion graphics are examples of moving images And sounds and music are examples of audio. On their own or in combination with each other
  • Common examples of uses include: demonstrations of contextual images; images with clickable parts (an image map) that link to further information e.g. Google maps; video recordings of teaching sessions; to produce media-enhanced feedback; and recordings of special events such as guest lecturers.
