Instructional materials used in a traditional classroom setting can include text (books, handouts, articles), graphs, photos, films, and audio tapes. In the DL environment, these materials are digitized for delivery via a computer and/or a network. This chapter presents topics related to multimedia content development for delivery in a DL environment. First, a discussion of file and format specifications for digital multimedia content is presented; second, levels of courseware complexity are discussed; third, steps in the courseware development process are described; and fourth, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) tools for developing multimedia instructional content and computer managed instruction (CMI) are presented.
