Retooling for Creative Curriculum Retooling for Creative Curriculum - Using Low Threshold Activities to Produce Best Practice Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia Abstract: Will Rogers once said "When you are through changing, you are through." Production of educational multimedia is changing and faculty and support staff are having to change with it. This paper describes potential benefits for using multimedia and hypermedia, describes barriers that limited their use in the past, and briefly outlines current issues.

Multimedia, as a concept, has reached popular acceptance. Convincing faculty members that multimedia and/or hypermedia is a good idea for educational use is just the beginning. Fair Use

Forge social bonds The first step toward a productive Web discussion is "just to say who you are," says Bonk. Assign roles

When a campus-based classroom becomes network-enabled, discussion forums extend and strengthen the social interaction already occuring in that classroom. Such benefits, however, are accompanied by time requirements. Management of online activities has become an ever increasing task and the more tools we have it seems the more work we need to do as instructors. Instructor cannot ignore their own learning curve in the use of an online platform such as Virtual-U or another.
