Multimedia is the combination of a variety of media used to create a presentation. For 50 years, television has been one of the most popular forms of multimedia presentations, combining sound, graphics, video and text to provide viewers with entertaining and educational programming.
Today, the World Wide Web and CD-ROMs offer computer users the same type of multimedia presentations, with the added plus of interactivity. Users of the Web or CD-ROM can interact with and control the message by choosing their own unique, self-paced path.
