This screen is for those who are interested in multimedia and interactive software. Engines discusses the future of a number of forms of media, particularly as they relate to education. It is itself also an example of a new type of hypermedia system developed at ILS called an ASK system.
Below are a few questions that will guide you to some high spots in the text related to media issues. If working through a standard book is like walking up and down every street in Chicago, working through these questions is like skipping from Wrigley Field to the Sears Tower to a few more key locations.
Click on one of the questions you think is interesting, and you will immediately be taken to its answer. From there, you will be able to proceed throught the text by asking questions and getting follow-up answers.
If you have a specific question in mind, choose questions that seem likely to lead to it as you proceed. If the text doesn't contain an answer to your question, either you'll find it in a few clicks or we haven't done our work right.
If you don't have a specific question in mind, you might want to use the GO FORWARD suggestion, which will lead you through the book using a coherent path. In the Web version, this path is fixed. In the CD-ROM version, it is dynamically constructed to fit your path throught the text.
