This module aims to introduce students to multimedia authoring software. The aim is to produce a short presentation for a specific audience, recognising the need for good page design and clarity. The presentation should cover a particular theme, and should contain both text and images. It should be intended for access by individuals who will navigate through the slides at their own speed and be offered choices throughout, via hot spots or buttons.
Ensure that any buttons or text which are used for navigation, or to open files or activate sounds, are clearly marked on the printout. If it is not possible to tell from the printout what an object is doing, then the student will need to write this on the printout, next to the objects.
Avoid overcrowding of text; employ suitable fonts, text size and position for purpose; choose readable combinations of text and background colours.
The student is able to link at least three slides in an organised way.
In addition to the pass criteria, there should be a choice of routes through the presentation, not simply a linear one.
Students must be able to identify at least two elements of the presentation (content, language, layout, colour, style, etc.) which address a particular need.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Next Steps Stage 2 Module 4 : Exploring Multimedia.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
