  Abstract: The Pathway Active Learning Environment (PALE) is part of an ongoing program of research aimed at investigating how to use interactive multimedia technology to facilitate online instruction in physics. Our research efforts are in part directed at uncovering and codifying general strategies to develop and implement online learning environments in efficient ways. PALE relies heavily on pre-recorded video both as a means of conveying verbal explanations and as a way of demonstrating physical phenomena. To function optimally it also requires significant input from students. Both of these requirements imply significant amounts of effort over prolonged periods of time are needed to create systems that respond appropriately to students' actions. This effort may be organized and distributed via the Internet by a larger group of developers. In this way an efficient and ongoing development cycle may be implemented. This poster discusses strategies for implementation.
