McKerrow, Phillip J., 2005, Teaching content creation with programming, IEEE MultiMedia Magazine, 12(3), 36-45.
Multimedia is an art form that uses computers as a means of personal expression. However, much multimedia content is unattractive, and many applications have poor user interfaces because many developers don’t have training in both programming and content creation. To counteract this, we teach students QuickTime for Java, which provides a rich library for manipulating media. Our students reported an increased understanding of multimedia programming and developed creative skills.
