Design of a Multimedia Help System in UNIX
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The department G at EUA has developed a project management method and tool, PROPS-N. The PROPS-N is an on-line system built in FrameMaker that operates in a SUN/UNIX environment.
This master's thesis attends to the problem of how to organize and implement a prototype of a multimedia help system for PROPS-N, with the help of the commercial tools available today.
I have searched for multimedia authoring tools and screen activity recorders, that can be used for the development of the prototype. I have evaluated the multimedia authoring tools IconAuthor 6.0, Gain Momentum 3.1 and MetaCard 1.4. I have also evaluated the screen activity recorders ScreenPlay 2.3 and XRecorder 1.101.
Some aspects that help you create usable help systems, and ensure learning, are also shown in this thesis. I have used a Multimedia Design and Development Methodology, with the tools ScreenPlay and MetaCard for the implementation of the prototype.
This thesis also includes suggestions for future development of the prototype.
