Steps to Making a Good Multimedia

Analysis: You need to study your project to figure out the goals, rules/requirements and determine your audience. Determining your goals will allow you to set the standard for what needs to be done and will allow you to have a checklist. Your requirements come into play when you need to determine the amount of information needed to get the point across. You will need to create a presentation that will be interesting/informative to the specific audience that you are presenting it to.

Design: You need to plan how your multimedia will look, what media it will use, the tools needed, personnel needed, and make a schedule for it. This will help increase the efficiency when creating the multimedia because everything will already be planned out.

Development: This is the part where you will need to actually construct your multimedia presentation. Also, you will be testing it in this step to see if it works properly.

Implementation: Now you will release your multimedia presentation into the real world and allow your audience to try it out and use it.

Evaluation: You will need to determine if your presentation if effective and serves its purpose. You can use surveys, interviews, and observations.

Maintenance: Keep updating your multimedia. This will increase the effectiveness.
