At the University of Southern California, we used beta versions of a
software being developed at the school. It is called "Multimedia Scholar".
It's hypercard based, and supports links to figures, photographs,
quicktime, and laser disks (only CAV). The programmers have taken any
control over the _look_ and _format_ of the final product, but it is simple
enough to use that first timers can create their own multimedia projects.
We used it for close-textual analyses of films on laser disk.
