Multimedia technology is permeating the educational arena and changing the way teachers teach and students learn. In this article, the focus is on the building of a constructivist learning environment in the classroom by way of the construction of a multimedia project. To accomplish this, students were required to undertake a multimedia development process (MDP), which takes them from the acquisition of media materials to the packaging of the final application. In this constructivist mode, students decided on their own learning goals and determined how to reach the desired learning outcomes themselves. They were responsible for the development of the projects' storyboards, the concept and multimedia authoring, interface design and interactive features, and deployment and implementation methods. Through this process, students developed creativity, critical thinking and collaborative skills and became active participants in their own learning processes. Similarly, the role of the teacher changed, from being the content expert to becoming a facilitator. The students were surveyed on their responses to the multimedia project. Results showed that they were very positive toward the project, enjoyed working in groups and became active participants in their learning process, thus making multimedia a good framework for teaching and learning.
