Abstract

The exceptional advent of interactive multimedia applications has led to the need for their exploitation for educational purposes. In this article, the design and implementation of a multimedia annotation environment for young children is presented. This environment was developed to provide children aged 4 - 8 with the opportunity to reflect upon and annotate episodes from their everyday life. The aim was to exploit the latest technological developments in the field of multimedia, to build an annotation environment where children would be able to add multimedia annotations to videos. Apart from the environment itself, design choices, interface realization, as well as media handling methods and performance issues are also presented.
