Make sure your multimedia file is accessible to people with disabilities.
When creating multimedia (image, sound and video files), it is important to keep file size small, as multimedia filesizes are usually very large compared to standard web pages. Larger files take longer to load, which means your viewer may get bored and give up. Though the University's internet connection speed is fast enough to cope with large files, the same can't always be said of students' home connections.
You can find a number of resources online to help you optimise your file size.
