Exploring the Solar System

We saw a beta version of Exploring the Solar System (AIMS Media). The problem with this CD-ROM is that there isn’t any real text. The core of the disc is a typical instructional film on the solar system, with hot links from the film to menu icons. Click on a planet and the relevant piece of the film comes up. Or you can choose simply to watch the 15-minute film straight through. You can take a quiz after the film, but that’s about all that’s here. This title begs for some supplementary material; text, a bibliography, Internet links, interactivity. A hot-linked film does not a multimedia program make.

– April 1995
