The eXtensible Interactive Media Player for Entertainment and Learning, in short XIMPEL, platform offers the possibility to create interactive media applications.
To do so, it uses the open source Adobe Flex framework, and the open XML description format. XIMPELís modular approach allows for flexibility and extendibility.
XIMPEL can be used on all computers which have the Adobe Flash plug-in installed. Interactive applications made in XIMPEL can be viewed locally as well as on the Internet.
XIMPEL is being developed at the Multimedia Group within the Faculty of Sciences at VU University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
