A rising number of individuals and institutions are now developing multimedia courseware, or interactive multimedia (IMM) as Rob Phillips, calls it. This book sets out to offer practical advice in projects focusing on general issues of design, development and project management. Although it includes an appendix that describes the characteristics of a number of authoring tools, it is largely intended to be independent of any particular software.
