What perceptions do the above terms convey to the reader? These terms describe interactive multimedia instruction. This instructional methodology brings together sound, motion, still images, animation, graphics, and text into lessons which are delivered upon request by computer to the student. The delivery of multimedia education to the student has been delayed due to the cost of computer peripherals and software necessary for providing sound and motion of sufficient quality. However, certain aspects of multimedia are readily available today and can be provided to the veterinary student.
