Making education more engaging, more enjoyable, and, in the end, more effective through the use of multimedia technology has been the goal of many researchers during the past few years. Encouraging results have been achieved so far. There are many examples where multimedia is used in educational scenarios with extraordinary benefits. As a result of the achievements, some people actually consider computer-supported teaching and learning not to be an interesting area of research anymore; they claim that most of the important questions have been solved. We think that this isn't true and we believe that now is actually a perfect time to address and refocus on this application area.
