This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
This unit standard is for practitioners who prepare, use and maintain multi-media in order to facilitate and mediate learning in any context. This unit standard will contribute towards the achievement of a variety of Education, Training and Development Practices and Human Resource Development related qualifications. 

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE AND RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING 
The credit calculation is based on the assumption that learners have no previous experience in the use of multimedia.
Although not a requirement, it is recommended that learners intending to achieve this unit standards complete the unit standard Facilitate Active Learning in an ECD Context from the ECD sub-field or the unit standard Prepare Learning Aids from the Occupation Directed ETD Practices.
