Digital Media pertains to the convergence of communication technologies, including television, the World Wide Web, and computer-based interactivity and nonlinear structure. It extends well beyond the scope of the business world. Interactive games, education, CD-ROMs, DVDs, digital video, and dynamic Websites are changing the way we learn and entertain ourselves.
