To produce the multimedia teaching materials more efficiently, it is important to define a software developing procedure and to obtain means for acquiring various resources. We have defined the standard procedure for producing the multimedia teaching materials as explained below. The following processes are required to prepare a scenario ;
-Clarifying the objectives
-Assuming target population & implementing scenario
-Studying contents & structure
-Writing the scenario
The following processes are required after writing scenario ;
-Preprocessing the resources
-Recording in specific media
It is clarified that academic and educational multimedia materials used for higher education have an episode, hierarchical, and database structures except for simulation. It is also found that authoring functions and descriptions are based on flowchart and script representations.
From conventional image representation techniques, we should select correct combinations of the following two ;
-Screen switching techniques such as cut, dissolve, fade-out, fade-in, and wipe.
-Screen switching meanings such as enumeration, whole and part, action and action, comparison and parallel progression, time passage, location transfer and change, and continuous and discontinuous meanings.
For the above image representation techniques, content expansion, user interfaces, synchronization between image and voice are studied. From those points of view, we produced and studied the multimedia teaching material named "Excavation of Akebonozo" in CD-Interactive and made sure that the techniques are applied effectively.
