Multimedia instruction is now an essential aspect of education throughout the world. It facilitates the acquiring and making of knowledge by students of all ages, whether they are in the classroom or at computer terminals conducting distance learning, whether they are academically challenged or gifted students. Interactive and proactive with regard to constantly changing technologies and ways of imaginatively engaging them, multimedia tools generate a full learning culture. After key terms are defined for approaching multimedia methods, various new products and tools are reviewed, and multimedia instruction is critiqued from diverse viewpoints. Several case studies are presented and assessed. The implications for nourishing motivation and creativity for students are briefly discussed.
