To begin with, a good feature which is visible instantly of the Multimedia Presentation is the components of the car, the car components are clearly shown in relation to the position that they are in the car. This feature is very effective as it is effortless to distinguish what car parts are positioned where in the car, so ultimately it is very straightforward. Another good quality aspect of the Multimedia Presentation is that when you click on the different sections of the car it instantly transfers into a secondary screen with the specific parts of that section of the car.For example when you click the braking section, the next screen it brings up an image of the brake disc and the brake drum. This is a good feature because it gives you a more in depth view of the specific parts of the car which shows more information. The final good feature of the Multimedia Presentation is the sound played when you click on one of the screens. This is a good feature because it makes the Multimedia Presentation much more interesting by adding a different way to keep you interested in the Multimedia Presentation.2. Not so good features of the multimedia product:There are numerous features in the multimedia presentation which are ineffective; one aspect is when you click on the specific component of the car, the secondary slide will transfer but you do not receive any information on that fragment. The second feature which is undesirable is the sound effect; I did say earlier that this was an addition which is effective, however the quality of the sound effect is poor and in fact irritating and it buzzes every time you press something. The final feature that lacks quality is that on the Multimedia Presentation there is a huge space on the right hand side of the presentation which isn’t being used for anything. This space would be perfect for putting some information about each component of the car.3. Product aims and target audienceAim(s) of the product:The aims of this product is that it is to be used as an educational tool as revealed by illustrating the various components of the car as well as the information provided with them. Furthermore it intends to display you where each part of the car by means of using the images. Finally it aims to show you what each part of the car looks like by allowing to zoom in via the zoom option.Target audience of the product:This Multimedia Presentations target audience are people in the age group of 8-20 and who are interested in finding out about the basics car parts. It’s for this target audience because it is clear and easy to use and it doesn’t over complicate the car by showing to many bits.Screen shotHow does the text/image relate to the aim(s) of the product?What this screen shot is showing is that it shows the way that the Multimedia Presentations is showing the different car parts and this is what it shows.What this is showing is the engine in further detail as it splits it into three different parts which are shown in more detail.What this is showing is that it is giving a zoomed in version of each of the different car parts. For example in this screen shot it is showing the four stroke cycle in a zoomed in version.4. Links between pages/screens/slidesQUESTION:YOUR RESPONSE:What did you have to do?To move around the Multimedia Presentations all you have to do is click on the section you want to go into or just hover you mouse over what section and it show what it involved.What happened when you did this?When you click on a section, for example braking you go into a sub screen showing the specific parts of the braking system. When you hover your mouse over the braking section it shows you an image of the braking system.How easy was it to understand what you had to do?To begin with it was quite easy to find out what to do but when I wanted to go back to the start screen of the whole car it took be a while to realise what I had to press the word car to go back as it wasn’t clear what I had to press.How effective was the interactivity?The interactivity of this Multimedia Presentations is quite good as it is easy to navigate but there is the problem of working out how to go back to the original car screen.ELEMENT:YOUR COMMENTS:Use of images in the productIn this Multimedia Presentation there is a good use of images as the whole Multimedia Presentation revolves around the image of the car and showing people the different parts of the car.Colour used in the productWhat it does is that it puts the outline of the car in a grey outlining so it is then easy to see the brightly coloured parts of the car inside the outlining. In overall it does use quite bright and interesting colours to grap the person who is using the Multimedia Presentations attention.The amount of text and other informationTo be honest there is no information or in fact text as it is just pictures. There is space for the text on the right hand side of the Multimedia Presentation as this space is just being wasted at the moment.The pace of the multimedia productThe pace of this Multimedia Presentation depends on what speed you want to work at because it has no set things which you have to look through. This means that you can just quickly look at something if you want to which was a good feature.User interactionIts quite good because its reasonable easy to use apart from the problem of going back but there isn’t really much complexities in the Multimedia Presentation which makes it easy to use.Use of animation and/or videoIn this Multimedia Presentation there is a good use of animation as it shows each part of the car clearly in relation to its position in the car which makes the animation good in this Multimedia Presentation.NavigationThis Multimedia Presentation is quite easy to navigate but there is a problem with going back. This is an issue as it takes time to find out how you go back in the Multimedia Presentation.5. Improvements to the multimedia website/product to help meet the product’s aims.The first improvement I would make to help meet the product aims is that I would include some writing on the right hand side of the Multimedia Presentation because it would be good when looking at each part of the car as it would be nice to have some information about the car part selected. Another improvement that needs to be made to the Multimedia Presentation is that they sort out the way that you go back as it took me some time to realise that you had to press the word car to go back so they need to make a clear button for when you want to go back the original graphic of the car. The final improvement that needs to be made to this Multimedia Presentation is that the sound effects need to be different for each different part of the car that you press.Review 1Type of multimedia product: Commercial Advertising Multimedia PresentationWebsite address (URL) or other product details: DVD RomName of organisation/product: MSTAR (new media agency).1. Good features of the multimedia product:The first good feature of the Multimedia Presentation is that it is very well laid out as you have your titles at the top of the page where they are meant to be, and the information is in the middle of the page where it is meant to be. This is a good feature because this is a conventional and tried and tested lay out for a Multimedia Presentation which is clear and easy to use. The second good feature of the Multimedia Presentation is that when you hover your mouse over one of the titles at the top there is a graphic which starts to move on the right which adds some movement to the Multimedia Presentation.

The is a not so good feature as it shows a lack of effort put towards making this Multimedia Presentation as there is no animation or any sound in the Multimedia Presentation. The final not so good feature of this Multimedia Presentation is that in the headquarters section and the portfolio section there is no information at all in them, this is especially bad with the portfolio section as it is showing that know one has hired them to do any work as they have no work in the portfolio section to show for it.3. Product aims and target audienceAim(s) of the product:The main aim of this product is that it is to advertise the company MSTAR’s work by showing there skills in making Multimedia Presentation. Another aim of the Multimedia Presentation is that they are showing how good there products are by doing a good Multimedia Presentation.

What this does is that it makes us trust their company as other companies have shown that they have trusted them.What this screen shot shows is that the company MSTAR is giving its contact details away at the end of the Multimedia Presentation to push people into contacting them and it also makes it easier to contact them.4. Links between pages/screens/slidesQUESTION:YOUR RESPONSE:What did you have to do?When you first go into the Multimedia Presentation it is quite easy as all you have to do is click on what section you want to go on and the information you desire comes up on the screen for you.What happened when you did this?What happen when I was going through the Multimedia Presentation was that the information I wanted was coming up when I wanted it with no haste which is a sign of a Multimedia Presentation which has been well done.How easy was it to understand what you had to do?With this Multimedia Presentation it was very easy to work out what to do as it was a basic click on the section that you want to look through and there may have been sub section on the right hand side of the page for people to click on.How effective was the interactivity?This Multimedia Presentation is not very interactive at all as all it is doing is making you click to a section and read through but that’s all there is.ELEMENT:YOUR COMMENTS:Use of images in the productIn this product there is no use of images in this Multimedia Presentation apart from the little graphic on the left had side when you hover your mouse over the top titles. What this does is make this Multimedia Presentation incredibly boring.Colour used in the productWith this Multimedia Presentation it quite a boring colour scheme as it is just pain blue with different shades of it around. It has the writing in white which is quite good because it makes it stand out from the background of blue. Also when you hover the mouse over the titles at the top they change colour to yellow which makes them stand out.The amount of text and other informationWhat I have found is that there is lots of writing in all section which makes the Multimedia Presentation very good at telling me what there company is about. There is the problem that they have no writing in the headquarters section and the portfolio section so the Multimedia Presentation is not complete.The pace of the multimedia productWith this Multimedia Presentation there is no real pace to it as you have to navigate the Multimedia Presentation at your own pace. The pace in which you go through depends on how quick you are at reading as there is a lot of text in this Multimedia Presentation.User interactionIt has good interactivity as it is easy to make you way through the Multimedia Presentation as all you have to do is click through at your own pace.Use of animation and/or videoIn this Multimedia Presentation there is no video in it at all which makes it quite boring to do. There is some animation in this Multimedia Presentation as when you hover your mouse over the section titles them there logo on the left moves which adds the dimension of movement to the Multimedia Presentation.NavigationThis Multimedia Presentation is easy to navigate as all you have to do is click the section that you want to so to and it is quite self explanatory what to do and how to make your way through the Multimedia Presentation.5. Improvements to the multimedia website/product to help meet the product’s aims.Well with this product there is one underlining aim with this product and that is that it has to advertise the company MSTAR which make a selection of product. I don’t think that they do this very well with this Multimedia Presentation as it is quite basically boring as they need some form of video and they need more animation. Also I don’t like the way they have published this Multimedia Presentation when it is not finished as the headquarters section and the portfolio section were not finished.Review 3Type of multimedia product: Interactive educational Multimedia PresentationWebsite address (URL) or other product details: http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/body/interactives/3djigsaw_02/index.swf?startPosition=Name of organisation/product: Science Interactive Body1. Good features of the multimedia product:To begin with I think this product is very well done as wheat they do is that they have four sections of the body which are organs, skeleton, muscles and nervous system which means there is a wide variety of body parts. This is a good feature as it makes the product almost addictive as all you want to do is fill in all the body parts to every section. The second good feature to this Multimedia Presentation is that you have to put all the parts of the body in the right place in the body and rotate so it is right to where it is meant to be. This is a good feature because it is a good educational tool as what it does is it makes you think about where each body part goes in the body.The final good feature is that this Multimedia Presentation is very good at giving information as when you are trying to find where each body part is going is that it gives information about what the body part selected does and gives hints where about they go. This is a good feature because what this Multimedia Presentation is trying to do is that is be an educational tool and by getting people to shown where each body part goes does this but what it also does is that its giving this information which is making it more of an educational tool.2. Not so good features of the multimedia product:With this Multimedia Presentation I found it to be really hard to find bad points with it as it is so good and professionally done but I found some minor problems. To begin with in this Multimedia Presentation there is no music or sound at all in the whole think which makes it a boring Multimedia Presentation. The reason this is a bad feature is that for it to be an educational tool it needs to keep the interest of the people who are using it and some sound effects would help this. The second not so good feature with this Multimedia Presentation is that some of the links don’t work from the section where you are putting in the body parts in her is a section which says for example heart fact file and when you click this it doesn’t work.This is a not so good feature because it is showing people that there Multimedia Presentation doesn’t work in some areas so it may not be any good and may not work in other areas. The final not so good feature with this Multimedia Presentation is that it is very hard to rotate and get the organs in the right place and then when you press on the hint button it isn’t very useful as it only tells you roughly where to put it. This is a not so good feature because you can see that people will get very frustrated with this and will quit out of it so people won’t use the product for long and they won’t come back to it.3. Product aims and target audienceAim(s) of the product:To begin with the basic aim of this Multimedia Presentation is that for it to be an educational tool for people. The way in witch it does this is it try’s to educate you about each of the body parts, as it wants to teach you where the body parts go in the body , and to teach you information about the body parts and the body parts uses. Finally it is trying to be a fun educational tool to keep people interested so they keep wants to fill it in and learn the parts of the body.Target audience of the product:For this product there are several target markets, to begin with there is younger children in the age of 6-12 who would find the Multimedia Presentation good at them trying to find where the body parts go. Then there is you teenagers in the age range of 13-18 who would use it to learn about the body in detail and then use it as a fun revision tool as it has all the information.Screen shotHow does the text/image relate to the aim(s) of the product?With this screen shot what it is showing is the way that when you are trying to place a body part, that it will tell you information on that body part and what it is and the roles of that part.With this screen shot what it is showing is the way when you put a body part in wrong it has come up with this message box which tells you if you have the rotation wrong or the positioning wrong or both.If someone is struggling with filling in the body parts it gives extra help by putting in the skeleton. What this does is it makes it easier for the younger people who don’t know the body very well.4. Links between pages/screens/slidesQUESTION:YOUR RESPONSE:What did you have to do?To begin with what I had to do is that I had to pick which section of the body I want to look at, which the options were organs, muscles, skeleton and nervous system. Once you have done this you then get to pick what gender person you have to use and then you are away with doing exercise. This makes it quite easy to do.What happened when you did this?When you do this it takes you to the page where you start to actually put I the body parts when and where you want to. The way you do this is you drag the body parts towards the body and put them in the place where they are meant to go.How easy was it to understand what you had to do?It was quite self explanatory what you had to do to get into the Multimedia Presentation but when you were actually in the Multimedia Presentation it was difficult to put the body parts in the exact right place with the correct rotation so it took a long time to really understand what I had to do.How effective was the interactivity?This Multimedia Presentation is the most interactive as what you are doing is filling in body parts in the right place so you are having to be involved in the Multimedia Presentation.ELEMENT:YOUR COMMENTS:Use of images in the productIn this Multimedia Presentation there is a lot of image used as the whole Multimedia Presentation works around the fact of putting images of body parts into a image of a body, this then means that there is a lot of use of images in this Multimedia Presentation.Colour used in the productWith this Multimedia Presentation there is one underlining colour scheme which is that it all is in the colour blue. This is because the body when you are putting the bogy parts on is blue and all the writing is also blue, but a different shade of blue. There is also a use of grey in the section where there is writing in the Multimedia Presentation, and finally there is of course different colours in the body parts as they are the actual colour that the body part would be.The amount of text and other informationIn this Multimedia Presentation I think that the amount of text is a perfect amount as when you are about to put a body part in a section there is an information box in the to right of the page which has information on the specific body part which you are trying to place so there is plenty of writing in this Multimedia Presentation.The pace of the multimedia productThere is no specific pace to this Multimedia Presentation as you can rush through and put the body parts where they are meant to go, or there is the fact that you can take your time and read through all of the text and not rush through, this means that the pace is variable to what you want it to be.User interactionThe user interaction in this Multimedia Presentation is really good as what you have to do is put the body parts where they go in the body which is making you get involved in the Multimedia Presentation which makes it a have good user interaction.Use of animation and/or videoThere is lots of animation in this Multimedia Presentation as the whole thing revolves around the animations of the body parts and putting them in the animation of the body, so they use animation well in this Multimedia Presentation. There is no video in this Multimedia Presentation which could be put against it but as there is so much animation I think there is no need for videos.NavigationThe navigation on this Multimedia Presentation is very good apart from the fact of getting the rotation and the position right in where they have to go in relation of the body. Apart from that there are no navigation problems with the Multimedia Presentation.5. Improvements to the multimedia website/product to help meet the product’s aims.What I will say to begin with is that this Multimedia Presentation is very good and it is very hard to find improvements but there are a few minor improvements. The first improvement that should be made to this Multimedia Presentation is that there should be some sound or music in the Multimedia Presentation as without this they might not be meeting there aim of making it fun as know one likes to do something that’s meant to be fun in silence.Secondly there is the issue that some of the links don’t work so the improvement is that they get all the link to work as if there are links that don’t work then you are making the Multimedia Presentation seem unfinished which is something that know one wants in there products. The final improvement that needs to be made is that they make it easier to find the correct rotation for the body parts when you are placing them as it can become very frustrating that you cant find where the body parts have to go, this then might lead to people not spending much time on it so it wont really educate them.
