Two new authoring tools for enterprise learning content have arrived from Macromedia: Authorware 5 Attain and Dreamweaver Attain.
Designed for professional developers, Authorware 5 Attain is a visual authoring tool for Web and online learning, and Dreamweaver Attain is claimed to be the first visual HTML tool for creating Web-based learning content. Content developed in Authorware Attain can be embedded in Web pages created with Dreamweaver Attain.
The new version of Authorware Attain has enhancements in media support, productivity, Web authoring and delivery, and student tracking and course management. It also features Knowledge Stream for compression and streaming of learning applications.
Dreamweaver Attain enables authors to create Web-native content without the need for plug-ins or Java applets. You can verify playback on multiple browsers during authoring, and there are link checking and library features.
Authorware 5 Attain will be available in Spring for $4495 (upgrades available from previous Authorware versions). Dreamweaver Attain is $1595 (Dreamweaver users can upgrade for $915).
