Investigating Lake Iluka is a full colour interactive multimedia package that will develop investigation and problem solving skills. It uses a variety of investigation techniques, on screen video segments using Apple's QuickTimeTM system extension, graphics and sound to simulate a lake environment. It is targeted at the high school level being applicable to Biology and Geography as well as Ecology studies.

Students can investigate the various ecosystems of the lake, make physical, chemical and biological measurements, collect information about individual animal and plant species and view footage of news reports and expert and local views on a variety of issues.

A built-in "note book" allows students to take notes on the content and save to a floppy disk for later editing as part of a report. Students must use the measuring tools, consult experts and collect news reports to find solutions to the problems posed. Recorded sound and still graphics reinforce the realism.
