Multimedia Research Starter (EDS)

Multimedia is a broad term that describes various entertainment and educational experiences, particularly those found in software or on the Internet. Multimedia is a portmanteau of multiple and media, in which media refers to any one of a number of means of communication, whether it be print, video, audio, digital, or interactive. Multimedia owes its inception as much to the art world as well as to early computer technology.
