software for local education

this is an attempt to undermine the domination of slideware in classrooms around the world.

knowledge delivery in the classroom includes more and more multimedia content and less and less linear description of a particular topic to a passive audience. multimodal came from the frustration with the staticness of every slideshow solution offered -once you've written it, you have to follow the linear order-, and with the need to jump between multiple different windows and applications during lectures.

the result is a hybrid between PowerPoint, a whiteboard and a web browser, with the ability to change any aspect of the lecture on the fly and to export your lesson to any format that you'd think relevant.

multimodal is an on-going research project in design and software studies.
