Abstract

There are a multitude of diverse technologies available for integration in the college classroom, but considering how to implement these initiatives can be overwhelming to the instructor. The adaptation of this technology is often very simple and involves little more than the Internet and basic word processing skills. A review of the multimedia applications, which are inexpensive (often free), easy to implement, and require limited technology skills, is covered. Multimedia items that can be easily implemented in the college classroom include animation, slideshows, blogging, instant messaging, podcasting, and video on demand. Multimedia, which uses the Internet as its transfer mechanism, can be an effective method of creating a dynamic college classroom experience.
