While multimedia technologies are being used in educational contexts, the effective use of multimedia in these contexts remains problematic.  In an attempt to contribute towards addressing this problem, this chapter presents a set of conceptual guidelines and a practical planning framework that is intended to inform the planning and design of more effective multimedia integration into educational contexts.  A mixed-mode approach is advocated in this chapter. Multimedia technologies are viewed as part of a tool-set and tool selection should be appropriate to curriculum content and to the teaching and learning context.
