    The University of the South Pacific (USP) a regional university, established in 1968, serves twelve independent island nations of the South, Central and North Pacific. The University is moving towards providing more of its programmes and courses through flexible delivery using online and blended modes. As a result there has been a gradual increase in the integration of multimedia components such as audio, video, graphics, animations, and simulations as part of courseware or course packages. This increase in demand is anticipated to have further growth. This paper focuses on the current status on the different types of multimedia currently integrated in USP coursewares, and discusses the areas of multimedia that is anticipated to grow over the next few years at USP.
