Our interest, development and use of multimedia educational materials has proceeded mainly along two parallel paths. One path has emphasized computer-animated simulations, which are animations controlled by parameters set by the student. This approach enhances student learning by providing realistic visual feedback of qualitatively correct results. The second path emphasizes virtual instrumentation, which uses graphics and video-clip demonstrations via the Internet. This approach increases students' learning efficiency by providing them with simulated experiences with laboratory equipment and procedures before, during and after conventional laboratory activities. One major obstacle to any kind of materials development, especially multimedia development, is the issue of resources. To most effectively combine our existing materials, and to leverage limited resources, we have established a framework for a coalition of technology programs with similar goals and interests. A brief interest survey, sent to approximately 240 members of the Texas Junior College Teachers Association, shows that 30% of the respondents are already involved in multimedia development, 54% have Internet connectivity, and 77% are interested in participating in our collaborative efforts
