Did you notice?

The IMC Help pages are designed to be a demonstration of different media files types, and different ways of displaying media on the web.

Some files are Adobe FLASH files, which will display as full frame videos in a separate browser window.

Some files are QuickTime movies that automatically download to your computer and launch in a separate QuickTime player window.

Some are "streaming" QuickTime videos that display "embedded" in a www page.

 

Welcome to the IMC's how-to page. Here you will find instructional videos about how to create media for D2L or your courses. You will need the latest version of QuickTime to view these movies. For any media problems you are having check out our HELP PAGE.
