Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Use Dreamweaver? eLearning is a gigantic opportunity for you. By 2007, according to Chief Learning Officer magazine, 43 percent of all enterprise training will be delivered on the Web. There have been some bumps along the way, but companies are desperate to “blend” eLearning into their training programs: The potential savings are huge. Here’s why you care: Install Macromedia’s free CourseBuilder extension, and you own an incredible eLearning development tool that leverages your existing web design skills. Everything you don’t know, you can learn in this book.

Betsy Bruce starts with “Instructional Design 101”: how to plan and design effective eLearning applications. Using the industry-standard ADDIE model, she explains how the different phases and participants in an eLearning project fit together and how to write specs covering everything from browsers to bandwidth.

You’ll use Dreamweaver to define eLearning sites and style sheets; construct interfaces; build reusable eLearning templates and library items; and integrate Behaviors, animation, and rich media into your eLearning applications.

Bruce then introduces CourseBuilder, which lets you create powerful eLearning interactions in minutes -- from multiple-choice questions to drag-and-drop. This stuff could take days to do by hand. You’ll learn how to create custom interactions that process learner feedback and produce personalized results -- even how to develop and score pre-assessments.

Bruce shows how to use dynamic content technologies like ASP for eLearning tasks like authentication and computing scores. What's more, you'll discover how to work with Learning Management Systems to administer your eLearning applications. How often does a book open an entirely new industry to you? This one does.

    Dreamweaver MX Explained

    If you¿re developing online training or elearning, Betsy Bruce¿s explanation of Dreamweaver MX should help you get more out of this powerful application. You can read this book cover to cover or dip into it and read those chapters that address your current problem. Bruce uses the ADDIE approach to creating elearning. She doesn¿t spend a lot of time discussing instructional design, but refers her readers to some excellent resources. The bulk of this book is a step by step description of how to use Dreamweaver MX and CourseBuilder extensions to implement learning activities. Dreamweaver MX incorporates the dynamic Web page creation that was previously available in UltraDev. Bruce discusses how to create and track a dynamic Web site and describes how to use Learning Site to track and administer your elearning application. The book concludes with several chapters on collaboration and optimization. Dreamweaver MX provides reports that will help you manage your elearning application. These reports are invaluable when assessing the quality of the application or making plans for updating or revising the site. This book won¿t tell you how to teach what needs to be taught, but will help you implement an instructional designer¿s vision for an elearning application. The downloadable files should help the novice developer explore the power of Dreamweaver MX.
