Learn Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 by Video: Core Training in Web Communication

Video Description

This innovative product from Adobe Press combines interactive video and a full-color printed reference to teach the fundamentals of Dreamweaver CS5 as well as the basic principles of web design. Structured around the objectives of the 'Web Communication using Adobe Dreamweaver CS5' exam at the Adobe Certified Associate level, this Adobe-approved product teaches how to create well-designed rich media websites with Dreamweaver.

Experienced instructors present 12 hours of high quality HD video, complete with lesson files, assessment quizzes and review materials. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in Dreamweaver.

Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they've learned, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge.
