Overview

With International Data Corp. projecting e-learning to be an $11.5 billion industry by 2003, the demand for interactive multimedia learning applications is on the rise. And Macromedia's Studio MX design tools—including Flash MX, Dreamweaver MX, and ColdFusion MX—provide the ideal solution. But figuring out how to combine these products to create the perfect active-learning applications for your purposes can be tricky—which is why you need Macromedia MX eLearning: Advanced Training from the Source.

Using project-based lessons, e-learning specialist and veteran author Jeffrey Bardzell takes you through the paces of these solutions, demonstrating how you can use them to create e-learning applications for both academic and corporate environments. Moving at your own pace, you'll learn by doing through the tutorials and hands-on instructions that have become the hallmark of this popular series. By the time you reach the end of this volume, you will have built four e-learning projects: one in Dreamweaver, two in Flash, and one that uses ColdFusion, Dreamweaver, and Flash to create a front-end for a complete ColdFusion-driven Web application. In the process, you'll learn how to create drag-and-drop interactivity, fill-in-the-blank dynamic text, hotspots, and a host of other useful e-learning features, including how to track scores and provide on-the-fly user feedback by connecting to a database through ColdFusion. Whether you're a corporate or government trainer or an educator grappling with the challenges of distance learning, you'll find what you need to provide the training your people require in Macromedia MX eLearning: Advanced Training from the Source.
