Establishing Multimedia Authoring Skills in Higher Education


This project is funded by the Information Systems Committee of the U.K.
Universities' Funding Council, as one of about twenty under the
Information Technology Training Initiative. It requires two Research
assistants. The project will take place between 1st August 1991 and
31st July 1994, although fixed-term contracts will be offered for 2 years
initially - the first commencing 1.8.91, the other shortly after. The
appointments will be made on the Academic-related research grades at
levels suitable to experience (probably #11969 (sterling) to #16216

The project needs two people who will be able to work together, and
collaborate with staff from the departments of the Project Management
Team - Hispanic Studies, Public Health, Oral Medicine and Pathology,
Audio-Visual Services, Enterprise in Higher Education, and the
Engineering Faculty.

We intend to appoint one person first, to start on 1st August 1991, who
will play a key role in the management of the project. The second
appointment will follow shortly after. Because the skills that the two
staff bring to the project are expected to be complementary, as well as
overlapping to some extent, we do not wish to specify each one
precisely. The following lists the combined skills and experience
required. The work could perhaps be further subdivided by jobsharing.

1 design of learning material for a wide range of subject
areas in higher education

2 design of computer assisted learning material

3 design of open learning material

4 authoring hypermedia and hypertext material using
software application packages

5 integration of text, graphics, video and sound

6 writing software code for linking application packages
and external devices

7 the interconnection and use of microcomputer hardware -
Macintosh and IBM computers, boards for video input,
manipulation and file compression, CD-ROM, Videodisc,

8 skills in entering rapidly and accurately large amounts
of data as text and pictures

The work will be based at one or more sites within Glasgow University,
and the holder of the senior position will travel sometimes to other UK
sites working on related ITTI projects.

The two postholders will be responsible to the Project Management Team.
The project will be administered by the Dept of Electronics & Electrical
Engineering, to whom the two postholders will be formally attached.
