Multimedia technology and the steel industry

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Multimedia programs can be used to teach structural steel design. While developing multimedia programs is time-consuming and expensive, among several potential benefits include reduction of time spent in training learners, quicker understanding of the subject, less use of equipment and material, and, consequently, greater productivity. The right combination of this technology, instructional design, expertise in a subject matter, and creative minds, could result in tools which not only improve learning and retention of a subject, but they do so in a more effective and entertaining way. Specific potential applications in steel construction and related fields are presented.
