Netskills Workshop: 
Images and Multimedia for the Web

      
09:30 - 16:30 Wednesday 12th January 2000 Manchester University 

As the World Wide Web evolves it offers increasing
sophisticated ways to present information. Multimedia,
involving the use of different formats to deliver graphics,
audio, video and animation, is recognised as a powerful
tool for teaching and learning, marketing and general
provision of information via the Internet. 


This practical workshop is aimed at users of the World
Wide Web who have had some experience of creating
basic Web pages. The workshop focuses on the issues
and practical aspects of designing and creating
multimedia Web pages.

Workshop Content: 
The workshop will comprise presentations, demonstrations and 
hands-on sessions with opportunities for questions and discussion. 
Participants will each receive a workbook which contains workshop 
exercises, presentation slides and other relevant materials. 

Topics covered will include: 
 * scene-setting overview of the use of multimedia including images,
   audio, video and animation 
 * the use of different image formats, including animated and
   transparent GIFs, thumbnails, colour-depth, palette compatibility
   and file size/download implications 
 * creating straightforward image maps in standard HTML 
 * investigation of audio and video formats including, real-time
   streaming technologies, use of plugins and helper applications 
 * Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML) 
 * web-page design issues relating to the use of images and multimedia
   searching for multimedia resources on the web 

By the end of the workshop participants will have:
 * created web pages using image formats such as JPEG, GIF - including
   animated GIF 
 * optimised images for web use, including manipulation of
   colour-depth, image file-size and the use of thumbnails to reduce
   download time 
 * learned how to convert an image into an image map using standard
   HTML
 * investigated a variety of multimedia formats and delivery methods in
   the context of the Web 
 * included audio and video elements in Web pages 
 * created a simple VRML file for inclusion in a web page 
 * explored the key design issues associated with writing multimedia
   Web pages 

Workshop Requirements: 
Participants should have previously used the World Wide
Web through a browser such as Netscape or Internet
Explorer and have authored simple Web pages using
HTML. Experience in using Microsoft Windows for
opening and saving files and opening and closing
applications such as a Web browser would be helpful.

The cost of the workshop is  105 for participants from higher and
further education. Other participants should contact Netskills for the
