Multimedia

Multimedia uses a wide range of content forms such as Graphics, animations, video, photography etc. to display or communicate ideas.

The world has had intense impacts from multimedia progressively.

Looking at the world now, our ability to communicate has obviously progressed to almost “out of hand” point in time so much that people are impatient, irritable and demanding. The world expects so much so quickly, so it’s compelling to explore multimedia in the 21st Century.

Multimedia has already had an effect on Education and the way we learn. It has changed the way people learn today and is prone to changing the whole system of education in the future or be used to supplement the existing learning methods.

Multimedia comprises both an opulent bundle of wishes, expectations and hopes with respect to a range of advantages claimed for the information society and measurable relations with respect to the interconnectivity, interactivity and integration of different media.
