This paper describes the last in a series of two-week summer institutes offered as part of the three-year National Science Foundation funded project, Instructional Multimedia: Curriculum, Professional, and Educational Materials Development for Science, Mathematics, and Technology, awarded to The Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC). The twenty-eight participants in 2005 were secondary teachers and college faculty. Each participant who creates and shares a Multimedia Learning Activity for classroom use receives a stipend in addition to individual copies of software for web development and animation. Results are provided from four years of overall evaluation forms and the evaluator's winter surveys of software usage by participants from 2004.
