This introductory text guides readers through the essentials of Authorware-a state-of-the-art multimedia authoring tool used to develop games, simulations, presentations, drills, and tutorials. Unlike traditional computer languages that require users to know programming, Authorware allows users to develop multimedia with only a minimal knowledge of computer programming and operation. Adopting a user-friendly, tutorial approach, Hooper leads users step-by-step through the authoring process, integrating frequent checkpoints that assess readers' on-going comprehension. The Second Edition presents the latest version of Authorware-version 4-with a completely new interface that enhances learning.
