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.
