Multimedia in a Career

I can identify at least five major career fields in multimedia: gaming and/or entertainment, web site design, computer-based training, custom multimedia software development, animation. Each of these fields has overlapping skill sets and each of these fields also have skills sets that require specialization. Taking this a step further, are there obvious skills that should be also carried over to a computer graphics engineering technology career?

Various Forms of Media

It has also been said that multimedia differs and excels from other media forms such as video, newspapers, and books because it offers flexibility along with interactive capabilities. Are there favorite forms of media that stand above the rest for various reasons?

Multimedia & Invention

I once read that "in a sense, multimedia is truly an invention". What do you suppose is meant by that statement and how does it relate to the area of design for the design graphics engineering student?

Greetings and Welcome

Tonight I decided to begin this blog in support of learning activities at Weber State University. It is my thoughts that from here I can share information and encourage further contributions and collaborations between students. This blog is now open for discussion....
