A Model for Developing Multimedia Learning Projects

The purpose of this position paper is to present novice faculty and designers with a succinct multimedia development guide based on a review of the literature and a Delphi technique with expert educators, designers, and programmers. After two rounds of review and feedback from a panel of experts, the following steps were identified to comprise a multimedia development model: (1) define the instructional goals, objectives, and audience, (2) review and investigate existing options, (3) determine format, budget, and timeline, (4) determine the content, activities, and assessment strategies, (5) develop evaluation strategies, criteria, and instruments to determine the effectiveness of the project, (6) develop the flowchart, site map, and/or storyboard, (7) develop a prototype, (8) perform a formative evaluation, (9) complete the design, and (10) perform a summative evaluation of product and process. These steps are demonstrated through the development of a specific multimedia project, an Architect's Scale to measure distances.
