Along with the rapid development in technology, multimedia will be used more and more in language education as well as in other disciplines. Many teachers feel impelled to learn the basic techniques which will enable them to create or manipulate digital materials, e.g. images, slideshows, audio and/or video clips. This workshop will present the basics of some common digitizing tasks and demonstrate how they apply to teaching. It will also provide, through the demos of my sample works, an in-depth look at the some popular tools and features.  The session covers the following topics:

1.           Sound Files: What format (e.g. WAV, MP3) should be used? How to record and play an audio clip via your computer? How to convert the format? How to upload the clip to a web page?

2.           Image Files: How to save an image as a digital file? What is the difference between formats? How to modify an image (make changes in color, size, image etc.)? How to add effective text?

3.           Video Files: How to create and edit a simple digital video clip for teaching?

4.           Creating Multimedia Materials: How to most effectively utilize some commonly available tools (e.g. MS PowerPoint) to integrate sound, images, and text and generate vivid presentations and interactive activities.
