Multimedia is the marriage of media and content, and it is any version of media that relays information or text. The multimedia combines delivery hardware, which facilitates audio, video, and display output. A multimedia is a group of external interpretation of the information using a vast array of coding.

On the other hand, hypermedia is an application of multimedia where multimedia outlets are connected through the internet. This connection encourages people to navigate interactive multimedia. Hypermedia is a non-linear system that is obtained from the hypertext and works in the same fashion.

Hypermedia is the culmination of graphic art, video, audio, and animation, which is sent to people with mobile phones and other electronic devices.

Multimedia is the combination of computers or specific devices that are used to text, audio, video, or message someone. It could also be animation, collaborative features, and still images. Hypermedia, on the other hand, is an example of multimedia with non -linear content, such as media used to interact with others. Education is the best example of utilizing multimedia. Such trainings are known as computer-based training.

A lot of in-depth training is done through multimedia nowadays. Hypermedia, on the other hand, is the use of specific media interconnected with each other, which demonstrates a culmination of information that is considered nonlinear. The worldwide web is a perfect example of hypermedia. Hypermedia is the use of an advanced form of hypertext such as unified systems to present text, graphics, and other media where the contacts are relayed through hypertext.
