"HyperStudio": Software for a Mediacentric World!
Communicating ideas in visual form is becoming increasingly more important
as is evidenced by the touchscreen kiosks at the market and airport. With the
nearly universal presence of multimedia reference materials, games, and literature,
the current generation will insist on having "HyperStudio" to create their own
multimedia projects and presentations. All multimedia authoring systems offer
the ability to bring together text, sound, graphics and video. Only "HyperStudio"
provides its own innovative approach in the following ways: accessing data on the
Internet, the ability to create and edit QuickTime movies, built-in image capture with
AV MACs or the QuickTake camera, MAC-WIN project compatibility
and the widest range of file typecompatibility for graphics and sound.
"HyperStudio" in Education
In this Age of CD-ROM and the explosion of the Internet, the way we read and gather
information has changed significantly. If students' references are in a multimedia format,
isn't it time they delivered their presentations and research in the same manner?
Paper and pencil reports, even word-processing, no longer prepare students for
their future! Our mission is to be a responsible participant in the movement to
fundamentally change the educational process in this country, to provide the
multimedia writing tool that not only supports a student-centered constructivist
approach to learning, but also to provide the ideal platform for assembling and
presenting the wealth of information now available through the Internet, CD-ROM
and other information sources.
"HyperStudio" at Work
Multimedia communication can be a powerful tool for interactive training modules,
multimedia resumes, CD-ROM catalogs and kiosk-style projects. With its ability to
add any multimedia element in less than 60 seconds, "HyperStudio" is the perfect
business communication tool. Commercial developers such as MACMillan
McGraw-Hill and Britain's Department of Trade and Industry have chosen
"HyperStudio" because it lets them achieve professional results without the lengthy
development time other authoring environments would have required. With
"HyperStudio", you cancreate impressive business presentations without hiring
"HyperStudio" and Family Projects
Parents recognize that writing in an electronic, multimedia style is now as fundamental
a skill as writing on paper. Parents at home will find that "HyperStudio" is perfect for creating
reports for school while also enjoying creating everything from family trees to vacation
albums with sound, QuickTime moves, stories and digitized pictures. "HyperStudio"
brings family members together in stimulating computer activities! "HyperStudio" is a
1995 Parents' Choice Award winner.
"HyperStudio" and the Internet
"HyperStudio" has its own innovative approach for accessing data on the Internet!
"HyperStudio" buttonscan direct Netscape to open to a specific home page or other
URL location. This can be used to easily integrate particular Internet displays right
into a presentation or student project! With "HyperStudio" MediaLinks, "HyperStudio"
will automatically connect through the Internet to a predetermined site,
download the file, and the image will appear in the clip-art selection window - all
without the user even having to know anything about the Internet! This means that
you can transparently access Internet files!
