Structured Testing for Multimedia Authoring

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


This paper describes one approach to improving the testing practices of non-specialist multimedia developers through the addition of test support functions to a popular commercial authoring tool - Multimedia ToolBook. In common with other mainstream authoring tools, ToolBook has no in-built support for testing (save the inclusion of a simple debugger). The ToolBook extensions described here are intended to encourage non-specialist authors to adopt a more structured approach to testing their software. Similar extensions could equally well be developed to perform the same task in other multi media authoring tools or in Internet authoring tools.
