Abstract

The World Wide Web (WWW) represents an exciting and potent force for educational content delivery. There are nu-merous multimedia technologies that can facilitate self-di-rected, practice-centered learning and meet the challenges of educational delivery to the adult learner. However, deliver-ing content via the WWW has been plagued by unreliability and inconsistency of information transfer, resulting in unac-ceptable delays and the inability to effectively deliver com-plex multimedia elements including audio, video, and ani-mation. This article describes how a CD/Web hybrid, essen-tially a web site on a compact disc (CD), combines the strengths of the CD-ROM and the WWW, and facilitates the delivery of multimedia elements while preserving connectivi-ty. Pressing a web site onto a CD-ROM can reduce the amount of time that students spend interacting with a given technology, and can increase the amount of time they spend learning.
