The following resources come from the 2009/10 BSc (Hons) in Multimedia Technology (course number 2ELE0075) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes.

The objectives of this module are to demonstrate abilities to:
Design and implement multimedia applications
Apply System Development Life Cycle methodology
Create and manipulate a range of media elements such as image, sound and animation
This project requires students to apply the System Development Life Cycle methodology to design and implement their personal multimedia portfolios for specific target audiences, with proper use of different media elements including image, sound and animation.
