    The University of Exeter heads the Images for Teaching Education Project which has developed multi-media products under Phase 2 of the Teaching and Learning Technology Programme. An aim of the project was to investigate the educational potential of a range of image-based multimedia formats. Products include videodiscs, videotapes, Photo CDs, and Photo CD portfolios with computer- and paper-based support materials; some of the latter are linked to images through barcodes.
    The management of the project and the development of the products, which involved specialists in subjects, the design and use of educational materials, the production and use of images and sound, and the evaluation of teaching and learning, are described in a national context. The processes and outcomes of collaboration are discussed and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach is emphasized.
