TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am charged with the task of designing Computer Based Training classes for
our software products and I could use any advice that anyone has to
offer. What software is best to use? I've been investigating some
Macromedia products, but I have had some trouble running the trial versions
of Dreamweaver and Authorware and I've gotten no help from their tech
support staff. Does anyone have anything positive or negative to say about
Macromedia products for developing CBT classes? What about other software
packages? Can anyone suggest some reading materials that might be useful
in the development process? Any other related advice or personal
experiences on what I can expect over the course of this project would be
