Multimedia Formats - Workshop Report


This workshop was part the JISC New TEchnologies Initiaitve's workshop programme hosted by the SIMA (Support Initiative for Multimedia Applications) project which is based at Loughborough Univiersity and monitored by AGOCG.

The workshop discussed a number of different types of formats (images, documents, delivery formats) but kept coming back to the need to recognise some form of taxonomy and to educate people about the issues relating to the selection of a file format. It was accepted that many people using file formats did not want to have to tcare about what format they saved their work in, but that the selection might well affect what they could do in the future with their courseware, images etc.
