Reviews - What do customers think about Coursebuilder for Dreamweaver f/x and Design?

Not the best book on the topic  May 29, 2002
I bought this book because it was the only one on the market at the time. While the writing is clear, the coverage is pretty thin. In the end I didn't feel that I could do all of the things that I wanted to get CourseBuilder to do. On the other hand, the book Using Dreamweaver to Create eLearning was extremely thorough and well written. It showed how to get the most out of the product and the examples were relevant to the interactions that I needed to build.
Priceless if your building any online learning sites  May 18, 2002
You can play with coursebuilder all you want but untill you read this book you will not know the full power and the customization of the free Dreamweaver extension known as Coursebuilder.Donna's book will help you build sites that hold student's attention and make learning useful. No coursebuilder option is untouched. If you would like to go even further by customizing the behaviors, she can get you started. If you want to track student scores per session or write student scores to a database using learning site command, then you must get this book because you will not find it many other places. Overall it is a must book if your building professional learning sites.
Worst book I have ever bought from  Mar 13, 2002
I have bought 40 to 50 books from this site over the years. This is the first review I have ever written.

This is a poor beginners book on Coursebuilder. It is too confusing and leave you hanging in the wind at crucial moments. I e-mailed the author and recommeded she read the H.O.T. book at ...before writing her next book. Lynda knows what users need and how to present the information.

A good book would be great to have. This is not it!

It takes all sorts  Jan 28, 2002
This is one of the most disappointing technical manuals I've ever read. For a start it's poorly edited. There is loads of redundant language, saying the same thing, in different ways, repeating and repeating (you get the point?) And, as other people have pointed out, some of the examples just don't work properly. However the real problem with the book (described as Intermediate to Advanced) is that it spends 260 pages on the 'easy' part, setting up the Interactions, and then tries to deal with the hard part of scoring, tracking, learning management systems and connecting to databases in 70 pages. That's just not enough, what's written is not clear and you'll learn far more from the on-line help.
A great resource  Dec 8, 2001
I have been using Dreamweaver for about 6 months now, but found I needed more functionality for a tutorial project. I had heard of CourseBuilder but had never tried it before. I also found that I would need Dreamweaver UltraDev to create the learning site I wanted.

Reading "CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver f/x and Design" gave me everything I needed to complete this project and so many ideas for future projects.

Especially helpful were the practice exercises included and the lifesavingly detailed appendix on installation and system requirements for all the different possible combinations of Dreamweaver, UltraDev, application servers, and HTTP servers. I would have been dead in the water without that!

Ms. Baker's laid-back writing style makes it easy to understand what might have been difficult concepts. The book is thorough and well organized. This one won't leave my desk.
