Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Today’s instructors are expected to create digital presentations as a normal part of their duties. Internet sites such as YouTube and Merlot demonstrate what can be achieved with the creative use of video, text, audio, and graphics editing. For the instructors who would like to create their own presentations in order to customize material to their own style or the needs of their students, a variety of tools have been developed which have the ability to turn anyone save the most technophobic into a reasonably competent multimedia creator. This poster examines tools needed to create multimedia presentations.

PURPOSE: To empower instructors to create their own multimedia presentations.

METHODOLOGY: This poster will review some popular tools for creating multimedia presentations: video camera, web cam, field recorder, tablet PC, and headphone/microphone.

RESULTS: N/A

CONCLUSIONS: Assembling all the tools necessary to craft multimedia presentations can require an initial outlay of around $2,000, and the learning curve for some of the devices is steep; however, the benefit is the ability to create customized presentations that will more effectively reach students.
