Overview

This innovative product from Adobe Press combines interactive video and a printed reference to teach you the basics of Dreamweaver CS4. Structured around the objectives of the “Web Communication using Adobe Dreamweaver CS4” exam at the Adobe Certified Associate level, the product teaches you not only the fundamentals of Dreamweaver, but also how to use the program to create effective forms of Web communication. You’ll get 12 hours of video, presented by experienced instructors, as well as lesson files (so you can follow along), assessment quizzes and review materials. The DVD is bundled with a printed booklet that provides a topic-by-topic guide to the video. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic, and to bookmark individual topics for later review. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disk so the students can practice what they’ve learned, and review questions help to reinforce freshly gained knowledge.

The video presents basic principles of Web site design, including copyright, project planning and management, meeting accessibility standards, and file formats. Building consistency into Web site design and interaction are taught, using CSS styles, and tools for managing multiple pages in a site, such as storyboards, wireframes, and site maps are introduced. Most of the video is devoted to fundamentals of Dreamweaver CS4, introducing the user to the program’s interface, how to use essential tools and commands, and how to use the Insert panel and the Assets bar. Create Web pages, import images and add text, style text and add hyperlinks. More advanced topics include using CSS rules to establish page layout, styling text, and maintaining a site.

    great video

    I was not sure what to expect when I purchased. However, I was very pleased with the video. It covered a lot of information and made it is easy to go back and review. It was just well done! Good product if you are new to Dreamweaver.

    quick and easy lessons

    The video and accompanying booklet are a nifty way to quickly pick up the basics of the latest Dreamweaver version CS4. En route, you also learn in a straightforward way the most common HTML tags, and how to use CSS to factor out styles from your HTML files. At the highest level, you get to see how to define a common look for many of the files in a website.

    The lessons drill down from there into the using of Dreamweaver for a particular file [=web page]. Each lesson is short; rather bite sized, as opposed to the typical massive chapters of a book on an entire programming language. (Take a look at many books on C++, C# and java, for example.) What you find is that Dreamweaver provides a rich user interface that makes it easy (and maybe even fun!) to layout HTML elements in a page.

    Adobe being Adobe, they wrote Dreamweaver to incorporate image editing abilities typically found in pure programs dedicated to that subject. (Think Photoshop.) So one lesson gives simple image tweaks that you can do; without having to go fully into Photoshop.

    Ditto for editing Flash animation files.

    Please keep in mind that the video (and its booklet) really only touch on the main points of Dreamweaver. If your budget can stretch for it, consider getting the authoritative text by Adobe on Dreamweaver, Adobe Dreamweaver CS4 Classroom in a Book. When you have assimilated the video lessons and are comfortable with more details, the latter book may prove helpful.
