    What is Multimedia?
    • In 2008 almost ¾ of U.S. population are Internet users (Internet world stats, 2008).
    • Almost 90% of college users consider themselves frequent Internet users(Hughes & Dennison, 2008).
    • Almost 76% of college users use multimedia while on the Internet(Hughes & Dennison, 2008).
    • This is where the students are….
    Internet Usage
  • Why is it needed?
    • Current generation of college students is visually oriented
    • Interactive curriculum and instruction
    • Wide choices of topics can be covered
    • Content can be delivered to the student in a shorter time period than reading.
    • Immediate communication of current events
    Multimedia and the Classroom
  • Multimedia today cannot be discussed without also including Social Networking
    What is Social Networking?
    • Facebook
    • Twitter
    • YouTube:
    • Pitzer College is Teaching a YouTube course
    Social Networking
  • What is RSS?
    RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication".
    It is a way to distribute a list of headlines and update notices to a large number of people.
    People are interested in websites where the content changes frequently.
    Examples of such websites are: news sites, community and religious organization information pages, product information pages, medical websites, and weblogs.
    RSS Feeds
  • Opportunities for classroom camaraderie
    Requires more student initiative/interaction than traditional lecture based classroom learning
    Anytime, anyplace learning
    More one-on-one interaction with instructor
    Wide variety and amount of material available
    Benefits of Using Multimedia in conjunction with Social Networking
  • Does not replicate the experience of a ‘real’ classroom
    Technology issues are frustrating
    From a student.. “YouTube is … supposed to be more interesting than this. YouTube is … not an education device. YouTube is … a distraction from the intellectual rigors of college, not a substitute for it.”
    Drawbacks to Using Multimedia
  • Actual examples…
    Webisodes – for a Business course
    CanGo case – 30 minute webcast of a “live” employee evaluation
    CanGo case –
    1. Business meeting on selling violent video games
    2. Viewing an employee evaluation
    Wimba – Online chatting during office hours or during a lecture online
    Recorded lectures – Live Chats
