In 2000 I developed my first interactive tutorial on CD for first year university students using Macromedia Authorware 5.0 and in 2009 I developed my first commercial application on CD using version 7.02. Macromedia Authorware and its Internet browser plug-in has not been updated for a number of years since Macromedia was bought out by Adobe, but in 2015 it is still a superb platform for developing applications on CD. These applications are fully functional under Windows XP SP3, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Opus Pro 9.75 is my choice of software for developing Flash applications and I use Articulate Studio ‘09, Articulate Storyline 3, and Camtasia Studio 9.1 for developing applications which can be viewed over the Internet.

● There are 20 questions and only one attempt at each answer is permitted in this example.
Whiteboard Demo - Solution of a Quadratic Equation

● Adobe Flash/HTML5 compatible (Camtasia Studio 8).
● Not all e-learning courses require slick graphics. A freehand whiteboard approach is sometimes more appropriate.
● The moving text was drawn using ArtRage in conjunction with an Aiptek Slim Tablet and was recorded using Snagit.
● A separate narration was recorded using Nero Wave Editor. Video and audio were edited and synchronised using Camtasia Studio.
