Objectivies and Approach

The main objective of the project is to develop a multimedia authoring tool for children. A direct result of this research effort will be to establish a communication channel between the student, the teacher and the developer that will eventually lead to their active involvement as designers and users.

More specifically, the project will deliver:

The Incremental Prototyping methodology will be used for system development. One prototype version of the system will be delivered in order to refine initial specifications by developing three multimedia applications; then the final system version will be implemented.

To further enhance the initial research and development efforts the features of the existing Logo-like environment will be extended to incorporate the following additional features:
