When Tim Berners-Lee developed HTML and the hypertext browser model in 1989, he envisioned a system that users of various platforms could use to access information that was primarily text with a few illustrations here and there. Today, the World Wide Web is used to deliver many different types of media, and each type of media can be modified through a seemingly infinite combination of variables. This lesson looks at how the students can work with various types of materials as they prepare multimedia for online consumption.
