"I developed and taught this ten week private college course in the summer of 2000 in London. It was custom-tailored to the 12 college students from 8 different national/cultural backgrounds: England, Germany, Russia, Malaysia, Taiwan, India, Thailand, and Finland. They were interested in multimedia and in developing their multimedia enabling skills, such as use of graphic and web design packages. "
