AbstractThe transition from text-based computer systems with a narrow band ofinteractivity, to multimedia systems with much broader potential for interaction, has urgeddesigners to consider human-factor issues to increase usability. In terms of machineintelligence, multimedia technology is no different from earlier text-based systems. But interms of human use, there is a strong need for the development of guidelines in designingthose systems and more research is required in this field. This section starts by highlightingsome multimedia design issues such as design layers, navigation, interactivity, and usercontrol, then the researcher describes three categories of multimedia design, which are:learning design, interface design, and screen design. The summary highlights importantissues for consideration by multimedia designers, pitfalls to be avoided, and areas wheremore research is needed.
