A Tutorial on Authorware
Authorware is an icon-based multimedia authoring tool which allows the rapid development of complex interactive multimedia projects, particularly courseware and kiosk applications, for both the Macintosh and Microsoft Windows operating systems. This project consists of three main elements: interactive courseware, written in Authorware, which teaches the student basic concepts involved in Authorware programming, and demonstrates the function of each of the icons used to program in Authorware; a tutorial through which students are given the opportunity to use Authorware to incorporate various media elements, including written audio, graphics, video, and text, into their own interactive courseware; and various course materials, including a statement of objectives, study questions, and quiz questions. These materials were developed for use in the Virginia Tech Computer Science course CS4984 (Multimedia, Hypertext, and Information Access) as part of the unit on System and Application Construction.
