Goals: Interactive Multimedia Documents Modeling



Multimedia has been largely applied to develop attractive and functional applications that allow achieving useful user-tasks. These sophisticated applications are usually developed using bottom-up approaches regardless of the complexity of the implementation. Furthermore, the design of complex Interactive Multimedia Documents (IMDs) introduces an additional complexity; the authoring of these applications can be an error-prone task considering the increasing number of media objects participating in these documents and the synchronization among them. For this reason, the authoring of IMDs should be supported by a structured methodology based on an intuitive abstraction that facilitates the design of complex IMDs. This paper presents Goals a top-down use-case driven, architectural-centric, UML based methodology that allows for the intuitive authoring of complex IMDs through the structured modeling of the presentations aspects, content and the complete behavior of these documents.
