Design Approach to authoring

Designing an authoring system spans a number of design issues. They include:
  1. Hypermedia application design specifies
  2. User Interface aspects
  3. Embedding/linking streams of objects to a main document or presentation.
  4. Storage of and access to multimedia objects.
  5. Playing back combined streams in a synchronized manner.

A good user interface design is more important to the success of hypermedia applications. User interface presents a window to the user to control storage and retrieval, to insert objects in the documents and to specify the exact point of insertion, and to index marks for combining different multimedia streams and rules for playing them back. The authoring system must allow playing several streams in a coordinated manner to produce a final product.
