Annenberg Media Interactives

Annenberg Media has provided funds for the development of educational multimedia resources. This Web site presents lesson plans and exhibits based on those resources.

The home page includes graphics to mark the different interactivities. Each interactivity is laid out similarly. The text is uniform and each section uses a different colored background.

Each page has the same menu bar at the top of the page to allow users to navigate the site. Each exhibit has its own menu.

Annenberg Media funds production of educational videos and CD-ROMS, and is used by colleges, high schools and businesses. The Annenberg Media Web site was developed to provide interactive learning material. The interactivities were created by educators who have used the video series in their classrooms, along with Web site designers. Many of the interactivities use print and multimedia elements, so some browsers may have difficulties. The site includes a FAQ to help with problems. The interactivities include activities and links to enhance the lesson. Because the collection covers more than 35 subjects almost every educator should be able to find material suitable for their classroom.
