Macromedia Authorware 5 Attain and Dreamweaver Attain

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).

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
