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. The paper argues that there is an important future for educational multimedia, and new methods and software programs are available that will change how it's produced. In particular, the philosophy and strategy of Low Treshold Activities (LTAs) provides an important foundation for the retooling of creative curriculum. 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

Reinventing class discussion online Web discussions are gaining popularity in academe as a way to spur intellectual exchange among students outside of regular class time. In fact, a recent survey by the Campus Computing Project finds at least a quarter of college courses have their own Web pages, many of them with discussion areas. But, as convenient as it is to log on any time and discuss the latest course reading with classmates, students often find that the online world doesn't prompt the same kind of bonding, camaraderie or even conflict that face-to-face discussions do.
