An Approach for Efficiently Creating and Managing Content for Multimedia Environments

Michael Klenner
Abstract— In some communication environments, it is advantageous to provide contents for multiple modal channels redundantly and not only in a single media representation. For the case of educational content, this can be for example: visual image-heavy presentation slides for face-to-face teaching, text-based lecture notes with full details for following up at home, and self-study online content for e-learning. There is an overlap in content and structure between all those media files whereas there are differences in style and extent. The requirements for creating and managing content for those multimedia documents are high: On the one hand, the creation process should take care of all media-specific characteristics to obtain the best possible documents, and on the other hand, authors want manage and reuse content in an efficient way. This paper analyzes the lack of current authoring technology, and presents a new approach which suggests a combination of traditional media-specific files and authoring tools with a connected single-source content system.

Index Terms— Cross media publishing, media specific writing, multimedia content management, single sourcing.
