Using Color and Text in Multimedia Projections
Winter 1995 (vol. 2 no. 4)
pp. 46-54

In this article we describe some of the problems that we have experienced with the projection of multimedia materials in a classroom setting. For example, certain colors that look good together on the screen and are easily distinguishable may not be easily recognized as different when the colors are sent through a projection panel and displayed with an overhead projector. This article provides some guidelines that developers of multimedia presentations should follow in order to avoid some of the common problems associated with the projection of these materials. We also discuss the appropriate use of color in multimedia applications based on psychological and physiological factors. An example of how this information can be used is also provided.
