72 Tips for Using Media to Engage and Teach

Contributing Editor, Karen Forni

And few of us know what mix of hardware and software will produce the required level of quality for the videos, audio, and animations we produce. It's no wonder so many of us either choose to outsource our multimedia learning elements, or throw up our hands and say, "Text, images, and the occasional sound clip are good enough!"
