Issued Date: 7 Aug 2014


This article describes the design and implementation of a CD-ROM-based German exercise package for commercial distribution and a listening and culture package using interactive multimedia based on authentic German television programs. The project demonstrates how a set of specialized authoring tools can be brought to bear upon the real-world needs and constraints of a curriculum based on a commercial textbook. Solutions to problems arising from the match between theory and technology are detailed and lessons for future projects are suggested.
