Abstract We are developing a multimedia encyclopedia that provides a framework for students to leam nuclear science. A variety of media formats are used to present concepts, including text, static figures, animations, and video. Two special prsentation formats use dynamically produced simulations to expose students to nuclear science relationships. These media types provide greater interactivity and flexibility than simple animations. Students access information through tutorials, a dictionary of nuclear science terms, biographies of notable scientists, and a timeline of nuclear science history. The tutorial organization emphasizes the interrelationships among topics. We present an overview of the encyclopedia.
