Assignment 51

This submission will outline and analyze the various multimedia for interaction types and their
main uses or applications.
Multimedia interactions are short, flash-based productions that combine graphics, text, audio,
and video. Multimedia for interactions in instructional content helps learners explore deeper
levels of detail at their own pace by engaging with three or more colorful segments. Interactive
media in instruction is a method of communication in which the program's outputs depend on
the instructional designer's (ID) inputs, and the ID's inputs, in turn, affect the program's outputs.
Multimedia interaction refers to the various ways in which humans process and share
information or how they communicate with one another. Interactive media permits people to
connect with others, whether that's organizations or people, by making them active participants
in the media content they consume through sound, video, graphics, and text. There are multiple
types of multimedia for interaction such as 3D models, guided images, tabs exploration, labelled
graphics, and timeline activities
3D Models
3D models are more engaging and effective than the traditional 2D images. 3D images give
learners a more realistic approach to their learners. Hoban (1937) mentioned that the value of
visual aids is a function of their degree of reality. A 3D interactive model is closer to reality for
learners as learners can tilt the model and visualize it from all angles. You can click on the 3D
model below of the tectonic plate movements. The user can see all angles of the model and can
gets to understand how plate tectonic movements occur, and not just a still picture. The 3D
model below can run like a video in auto-play mode.
Guided images
Guided images give users an easy way to:
Inspect the features an object, machine, room layout, medical scenario, or anything with
intricate details
Identify the parts of a photo or graphic
View the parts of a photo or graphic

Below is a grid of guided images showing Zambia’s former presidents. If this image is designed as
being guided and interactive, it means that each time a user clicks on any image, the image will
display background information of the person selected. Guided images inspect the features of an
object, room layout, machine or anything with intricate details.
Tabs exploration
Tabs explorations help users:
Compare differences among several items
Study the members of a group
Examine a range of ideas, philosophies, or approaches

Section Diagrams (circle or pyramid) let users:
See related items in a circular or vertical hierarchy
Interact with ideas or concepts in layers
Peruse an approach or a philosophy via a graphic interface
Labelled graphic
The labelled graphic enables users to
View relevant parts of an image
Examine the details of a photo
Probe the features of a software screen shot or any interface
Process overviews help users:
Discover the steps of a linear process
View a collection of related items
Analyze a workflow or procedure
Timeline activity
Timeline activity let users:
Walk through a progression of period
View a continuum of historical events
Investigate the key dates or milestones in a schedule
