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.
