Tutorial 1: The Synchronized Multimedia Interaction Language (SMIL)

Instructors: Lloyd Rutledge & Linda Hardman

Time: Friday, June 2 PM


SMIL is a W3C recommendation, approved in June 1998 and quickly gaining popularity, which provides a vendor-independent, declarative language for hypermedia presentations on the Web. With at least three players currently available, and with more and more presentations being posted on the Web, SMIL promises to do for interactive multimedia what HTML did for hypertext: bring it into every living room with an easy-to-author, readily implementable format and easily accessible players for it. Its official specification is available at http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil.
