CourseBuilder Interactions

CourseBuilder interactions allow you to easily build a project from basic elements. After installing CourseBuilder you can access the full CourseBuilder documentation under Help Using CourseBuilder. The elaborate help files documents each interaction type. Help buttons also appear in each tab of the CourseBuilder Interaction dialog box (see Figure 23-2). If you installed CourseBuilder in the Dreamweaver4/CourseBuilder folder, a sample CourseBuilder project is at Dreamweaver4/CourseBuilder/Tutorial/cb_tutorial/discover_comp/discover_nav.htm. More online information can be found at the resources listed under Help Welcome to CourseBuilder.

If you are developing highly interactive courseware, you should consider using other Macromedia products, such as Flash, Director, or Authorware, in combination with Dreamweaver. Authorware is designed for creating computer-based training (CBT) and is bundled with Dreamweaver in the eLearning Studio (see http://www.macromedia.com/software/elearningstudio/). For an overview of eLearning solutions, see the eLearning product matrix at http://www.macromedia.com/resources/elearning/matrix.pdf.
