Most academic staff are constrained to deliver subjects with the traditional lecture / tutorial environment. Despite this restriction it is possible to make effective use of multimedia materials and Web resources. This presentation discusses the use of various multimedia and Web based materials used within a traditional lecture / tutorial setting for a first year programming subject, paying particular attention to improving the effectiveness of their incorporation into those lectures and tutorials. Examples of these materials, including, where appropriate, the development vehicles used will be shown as part of the presentation.
