This study reports on the results of a recent Delphi study in which eleven Instructional Design and Technology professionals working in a higher education setting identified key multimedia knowledge and skills required of entry-level Instructional Design and Technology professionals. Responding initially to three, open-ended questions, this Delphi panel distinguished and ranked seventy unique items. Results are summarized and discussed. The authors also reflect upon how the results of this study initiated recent curricular revisions to their respective multimedia production courses. Future studies and directions on understanding how best practices involving multimedia production skills also are proposed.
