This presentation will describe and demonstrate an "advanced" multimedia model called the virtual practicum. "Advanced" multimedia integrates media to provide an immersive learning environment and learning experiences using multiple modalities. In addition to scientific and technical knowledge, it deals with less quantifiable, often more complex kinds of knowledge that, as Donald Schön said, "Lie beyond the canons of technical rationality." The virtual practicum incorporates mentor/apprentice learning strategies, case-based learning via simulations, lectures, computer-based activities, interviews with patients, and role-modeling by experts, all in a graphically integrated learning environment. We assert that the model is an optimal one for clinical education in the health professions, and for equivalent education in other professions. The virtual practicum model includes an integrated development environment (IDE) that allows content objects (graphics, lectures, simulations, etc.) to be reused, modified, and shared. The IDE, termed Tamale, has been evolving for nearly 20 years. It allows delivery of content via broadband Internet or dial-up Internet + CD-ROM.
