As communication technology in the workplace becomes more complex, students need to learn how to evaluate and develop applications for that technology. This article describes a team-taught, interdisciplinary multimedia development course created to address such technology issues. Included in this description is a rationale for the course, an overview of the topics covered, and the development projects assigned in this capstone course. Based on our belief that high-quality multimedia applications are the result of team-based development, the class reflects a collaborative learning model. Undergraduate students from two academic disciplines, Management and Information Science and Communication, shared their expertise in computing, electronic media production, and group communication and presentational skills.
