Multimedia products usage in education has become an important tool to improve the teaching-learning process. Reasons behind this include that multimedia products allow students to face virtual situations with elements of real-life problems, they are sensitive to learning needs, they allow practice in decision making, and they facilitate distance learning, among others. Developers of many of these multimedia products or applications are teachers and professors who want to enhance their teaching methods, and who have the needed training to design instructional activities and to define learning contents. However, they do not always have the required technical and process preparation to achieve, in an efficient and successful way, this type of applications. Because this, it is convenient for educators to have a guide that leads them through the development of multimedia applications beyond instructional design, and in an independent way of methodological issues and information technology tools used. In this document is presented a usable and defined process to develop educative multimedia products, considering instructional design as the starting point for the multimedia application development. The use of this process improved communication among development actors, enhanced project management, and simplified development of educative multimedia products.
Defined process, educative multimedia product.
