What is Computer-based
Interactive Multimedia Training?
Besides being a mouthful to say, computer-based interactive multimedia training is an exciting new way to learn. If your kids pop an encyclopedia CD into your computer to produce reports for school, you may already be familiar with the concept.

Look up Babe Ruth on that encyclopedia and you're presented with several options; read about his astounding career, look at photos of that famous swat, or view a short video of one of his many slow trots around the bases to the roar of jubient fans in Yankee Stadium. You choose to experience all three -- in any order you want as many times as you like. It's both interesting and and fun.

All kinds of information is now begin packaged on CD-Rom compact disks because of the huge storage capacity and ease of use. The friendly format with lots of room makes it possible to combine text, graphics, video, and sound for the ultimate multimedia learning experience. But what makes it fun is the interaction. Like the rush of power you get from the TV remote, interactive CDs put you in control. No one but you decides when you will click that mouse --or on what button or text link you will click it.
