Here is a varied collection of slides, slide shows and movies taken over the last few years in conjunction with our Interdisciplinary Studies Program here at Miami University. While multiple computer platforms are suitable for multimedia work, my computer platform of choice is Apple's Unix based OS X on a Quicksilver Powermac. Most any Mac will do. Apple's Quicktime technology is nothing short of amazing and is available, for free, on Windows Computers. The movies were processed using Apple's free I-Movie or Final Cut Pro. The slides were organized into slide collections using Andrew Stone's Photo-to-Web

    Quicktime Streaming

    Here is a collection of a few of my latest attempts at Quicktime Streaming. Sometimes the quality is not so hot. But, overall, the technology is extremely promising. These movies are streamed from a "Quicksilver" Power Mac using Apple's free, cross-platform Quicktime Streaming Server 4.0. I'll add new examples as I make them. This technology is incredibly useful in the classroom and has been succesively utilized in a wide variety of teaching settings.
