At conventions or conferences in recent years publishers and producers are often displaying materials for use in elementary or secondary grades and you have probably noticed the profusion of materials that are offered as multi-media. Many of these are earnest attempts to provide a well-rounded system of materials on a subject. Others are frauds and merely present a neatly packaged program that meets the definition of multi-media merely by content of materials such as a filmstrip with a record and accompanying script.
The purpose of this paper is to present some guidelines, from our experience with an advanced farm management course, on the use of multi-media and multi-image in the context of the definition of instructional media.
