Overview

This ebook is a great guide to help you learn ZebraZapps, the new e-learning development tool from the creators of Authorware. ZebraZapps enables you to develop games and e-learning modules without writing code. This Starter's Guide teaches you how, while inducing neither sleep nor fits of rage.

If you're not familiar with ZebraZapps, check out zebrazapps.com to test drive the program--it's initially free, nothing to download. You'll begin to see how to create interactions by dragging "wires" from one widget to another. You'll also begin to see that you can learn Zebra faster with a good guidebook.

The Starter's Guide to ZebraZapps spends the first chapter teaching you the basics about how to do this "wiring." After that, it's right on to short, confidence-building demonstrations: learn how to program a drag-and drop, make an interactive map, or choreograph the appearance of different on-screen elements to a pre-recorded narration. The final two chapters of the book take you step-by-step through a challenging project: building a simulation to teach how to drive a stick shift. This one integrates video, many audio files, and lots of learner interactions. See the finished project at www.LearnZebraZapps.com/big-project.html.

Editorial Reviews

Judy Unrein
"An efficient and fun way to go from novice to proficient."

I haven’t done an incredibly deep dive yet, but the chapters I’ve read are conversational, well explained, and illustrated using realistic examples. The two things I find most impressive, though, are the attention he gives to higher-end features (often overlooked in software guides) and the amount of the book (almost half!) that is devoted to guided practice on a reasonably advanced project.
