The importance of multimedia in distance education has increased steadily over the last few years. This fact implies a growing need for the production of large quantities of multimedia programs with a high level of user interaction. As the production of sophisticated multimedia programs is rather expensive, the question can be asked if it is possible to produce educational multimedia programs in a cheaper way. This could be achieved in two ways: either by simplifying the educational contents in such a way that there would be no high demands for graphics, videos and a high level of interaction, or to use some existing products that could be modified into a multimedia form. Two systems will be presented that will allow us to create interactive multimedia programs both in a CD-ROM environment and in a network environment as well. These multimedia programs have been created from already existing videotapes that were digitized and enhanced with interactive features.
