DIGITAL MEDIA, CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS, 4E prepares students for the multimedia-rich workplace by teaching them multimedia concepts as well as business-standard software applications to complete projects and solve problems. The non-software-specific text approach gives students a strong foundation in the concepts and practices of digital multimedia and allows the text to focus on the more creative end of business technology. If needed, software-specific directions to assist in learning can be found on the website.
