In this paper we introduce the "Instant MultiMedia" (IMM) approach to ICT-based communication. IMM is characterized for being quick (30 days to deliver the application) and low cost (5,000 US dollars for a medium-sized applications). It is therefore a suitable solution in a number of occasions: when a sudden communication need arises, in the case of small institutions with scarce resources, when niche target and content are to be addressed etc. We will introduce a concrete case-study, "Enigma Helvetia tales", a multimedia (text, images, audios) and multichannel (web, CD-rom, podcast) application that was developed in spring 2008 in the occasion of an art exhibition held in Lugano (CH). An extensive user study -- involving more than 200 users -- proved the efficacy of the approach in terms of satisfaction, better understanding of content, knowledge retention and enhanced curiosity towards the event.

Abstract

In this paper we introduce the "Instant MultiMedia" (IMM) approach to ICT-based communication. IMM is characterized for being quick (30 days to deliver the application) and low cost (5,000 US dollars for a medium-sized applications). It is therefore a suitable solution in a number of occasions: when a sudden communication need arises, in the case of small institutions with scarce resources, when niche target and content are to be addressed etc. We will introduce a concrete case-study, "Enigma Helvetia tales", a multimedia (text, images, audios) and multichannel (web, CD-rom, podcast) application that was developed in spring 2008 in the occasion of an art exhibition held in Lugano (CH). An extensive user study -- involving more than 200 users -- proved the efficacy of the approach in terms of satisfaction, better understanding of content, knowledge retention and enhanced curiosity towards the event.
