Multimedia refers to documentaries, television news and analysis programs, radio news, podcasts and more.

Use multimedia as you would newspapers, magazines, and general books; that is, to help you understand:

  • Who the stakeholders are in regard to your topic - who is impacted, who the key players are, etc.
  • Context and historical background
  • Why this issue is happening
  • Key concepts and terminology
  • A specific aspect of  your topic
  • ... and more
