For many situations, the best way to convey a concept is via an image, concept map, audio, video, animation or three-dimension visualization.
Common multimedia options include:
- Graphs and charts
- Concept Maps
- Illustrations, Diagrams or Geographic Maps
- Digitized Audio
- Digitized Video
- Three-Dimensional Illustrations
With so many options, your first task is to choose an appropriate technology, then create a sample file to use in a course. You should think of some best practices or favorite examples of educational content in your field to make the best decision.
