Macromedia Authorware 7
Reduce learning time and speed development with the familiar Macromedia user interface. Dockable panels can be grouped together, collapsed, or expanded as needed, providing a smooth, highly configurable workflow. The visual interface lets you develop rich-media e-learning applications without scripting. Just drag and drop icons to create your application's logical outline, and use menus to add content. Leverage existing PowerPoint presentations to rapidly create rich multimedia e-learning content. Interactivity is built right into the Authorware design. Add content, and then choose from 11 response types to make your content come alive. Deliver applications with the click of a button to corporate networks, CD, and the web. One-button publishing integrates and automates all the steps in the publishing process, and offers such features as batch-processing and customizable settings. Knowledge Objects are prebuilt templates with wizards that drastically cut your development time. Use them to accelerate both large and small authoring tasks, from creating application frameworks and quizzes to installing fonts or locating a system's CD-ROM drive. Drag and drop from the Knowledge Object gallery, and then fill in the content. Create courseware that can connect to LMS systems and that complies with standards from the aviation Industry CBT Committee (aICC) or the aDL Shareable Courseware Object Reference Model (SCORM). Users work with the wizard to decide what information to get or send to the LMS. The Knowledge Objects handle all the complicated back-end communications with the LMS. LMS Knowledge Objects can communicate through aDL and HaCP, as well as over LaNs. Create interactive graphical buttons, check boxes, radio buttons, and other user interface elements. Buttons can trigger sounds or text and display custom cursors, and you can assign up to eight states to each button. Choose from 20 interface controls - such as buttons, check boxes, radio buttons, and combo boxes.
