This paper reports on objectives, methodology and achievements in an ongoing multimedia project in law undertaken by a team of researchers at the Queensland University of Technology. The long-term goal of the project, known as The Crimson Parrot, is to develop a library of custom-made multimedia CBE lessons for use across a broad spectrum of subject units in the LLB degree. The project is focused particularly on identified areas of forensic and other practical skills, where multimedia can significantly augment traditional classroom teaching and learning through real-life, real-time simulation This paper provides an overview of the whole project and a description of progress and problems to date in development of the first lessons on Evidence. We conclude with a summary of planned development.
