(TR13) Looking at Multimedia: Design Issues in Several Discovery-Oriented Programs

This paper presents a framework for reflecting on the design of discovery-based multimedia programs, based on a review of several multimedia design examples. Children, teachers and CTE staff reviewed the programs, using and discussing them as consumers as well as design critics. This paper provides a synthesis of their differ-ent perspectives on the programs’ characteristic features, and reviews the basic components of most discovery-oriented multimedia programs.
