Overview

Authorware Attain is a key tool for the development of media-rich interactive learning applications. This book with companion CD-ROM takes you beyond the usual handbook and explains how to make use of the ultimate potential of Authorware Attain to create interactive multimedia and computer-based training projects for delivery on the Web, LANs and CD-ROMs. This book is divided into a compendium and a workshop to facilitate its use as a learning tool and reference manual: both for those just starting to explore the advanced usage of Authorware Attain and for skilled users, who now seek to get the most from Authorware Attain.
The main issues taken up by this tutorial include the application of Active X Controls, techniques of database binding, the use of libraries and templates (Knowledge Objects), variables and functions and a look at Pathware Attain. The companion Windows-only CD-ROM provides both tutorials and useful tools for building new applications.
