During the last four years as a project coordinator of computer science students I have conducted experiments into the teaching of multimedia design and project management using an action-research approach. Beside a constructivist learner-centered approach, the Scenistic methodology developed in our research laboratory has been fully integrated during the last year. The students were always very free about subjects, tools, supporting media and realization options but the Scenistic introduction has been coupled with a very rigorous roadmap presenting several documents as strictly required and providing formats for several of them. Evaluation procedures have been established for comparing this last year with previous ones and their use has stated a very significant improvement both for the completeness of the design and for the global richness of the projects. This allows now to providing new pedagogical tools for instructors in the multimedia arena and suggest the adoption of the Scenistic methodology.
