Multimedia is becoming an increasingly important part of elearning and online learning. Over the past several years, many different tools for creating multimedia have become available and easily used. However, without good process, grounded in research-based instructional principles, multimedia often falls short of its potential to increase student learning and success. At Franklin University's International Institute for Innovative Instruction, we have developed and refined a streamlined, collaborative process for developing high quality, effective multimedia. In this poster session, we describe the process we use to conceptualize and develop targeted multimedia for our online and face-to-face courses. We also share specific examples of how we have used this process to create multimedia for courses at Franklin, along with best practices and tips for creating your own quality multimedia.
