Laszlo Lipot's Multimedia Design and Technology Education Modules

All the work on the and web sites has been written and created by me, Laszlo Lipot. I am making my Multimedia Design and Technology Education resources available for all to download free of charge. Terms and conditions apply.

My D&T resources consist of:

  1. HTML web pages with embedded images and swf Flash animations. (You will need Flash Player installed and enabled on your PC or handheld device to view the animations.) See info about viewing Flash animations on your computer.
  2. PDF versions of D&T theory and exercises.
