Multimedia Design and Applications

(View Complete Item Description)

Computers and information technology have changed the world and affected millions of lives in ways that no one could have foreseen. There is a general agreement that computer technology is a crucial resource in education today. Computers and ICT can bring benefits such as : use of productivity tools; in- teractive teaching packages available on CD for different subjects; access to internet and thousands of online databases; distance learning facilities; links to other schools or colleges; and special facilities available for students with disa- bilities- for example partially-sighted students may be able to change text sizes and background colour. The list is long. This module picks on some of these benefits and provides a basic platform to multi-media applications in the teaching and learning of mathematics and Science at secondary school level.
