This course is aimed at multimedia beginners, not complete computer novices. It assumes that participants are quite familiar with using a computer and would be able to learn a new application fairly quickly. The emphasis is on the preparation of multimedia data and its subsequent incorporation into a system that may be delivered on a CD-ROM or over the web.
