This paper discusses the application of Learning Objects in supporting the teaching of principles of Audio Engineering - a subject traditionally taught face-to-face utilizing specialized audio equipment. It demonstrates how creating interactive multimedia learning objects can enhance tra- ditional teaching methods, and potentially provide virtual learning environments for online deliv- ery. The paper also focuses upon the application of the multimedia architecture 'QuickTime', which was chosen because of its cross-platform capability, multi platform delivery and scalability (Internet, CDROM, Hard drive...), ease of authoring, high level of interactivity possible, and ex- cellent audio capabi..
