Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This hands-on approach to multimedia discusses what it takes to develop multimedia projects at a beginning or intermediate level. The student learns to assemble a wide range of multimedia productions through the guidance of the text and the CD-ROM containing tutorials, sample software, and exercises in specific graphic, sound and authoring software. The student learns how multimedia has evolved through the years, where it could go in the future, and what they need to know to be a part of this ever-changing industry.

Library Journal Review

The first half of Peck's book discusses multimedia concepts, how to develop a project, selecting hardware and software and media preparation: graphic, sound, video, and animation. The second half of the book discusses authoring the actual piece and walks the reader through some hands-on exercises doing multimedia design with Macromedia's Director, Adobe's Persuasion, and others. The disc includes mPower and other applications and macros. This is an excellent practical follow-up to Graham's interactivity book reviewed above. (c) Copyright 2010.
