We want to develop a multimedia CD-ROM/Web based program that contains all the theory of a formal audio engineering course. It will have video, audio, pictures, text and even a text narrator - using speech simulation technology - to make it easier to understand. Using this attractive interface, we want to provide an easy and efficient way to teach audio engineering.

For that we would like to take about 5 minutes of your time answering these simple questions.

  1. In your opinion, what would be the best way to learn or to improve your knowledge in Audio Engineering? (check more than one answer if you think that the ideal would be a combination of different methods)

  1. In an Audio Engineering course, how important is for you:

 

essential

important

some importance

useless

  1. Social interactivity of students
