Summary
  • Multimedia-based training (MBT) is a growing field in the corporate market that could help create the new jobs that technology has been blamed for eliminating. MBT combines text, audio, video, databases and interactive computing, and is being increasingly used by companies for training workers. MBT, which is one part of the $1 billion computer-based training market, has been used by companies such as IBM, AT&​T, Ford, Xerox and American Airlines since the end of the 1980s. A study of the Fortune 1000 companies shows that 45% of these companies are using MBT for some part of training. Some companies resist the idea because multimedia technology is still considered by many to be a toy and not a functional tool. Multimedia also requires an initial investment that can be quite high but corporate users report that MBT produces a very high return on investment.
