BOSTON, MA (Nov. 2, 2007)—Filling a training gap and following on the heels of the largest software release in Adobe's 25-year history, O'Reilly Media and Aquent Graphics Institute (AGI) have developed the Dynamic Learning Series to help creative professionals and enthusiasts discover how to maximize the new and improved features of Adobe Creative Suite (CS3).
Produced in collaboration with O'Reilly Media, AGI's latest publication, "Dynamic Learning: Dreamweaver CS3" (O'Reilly, $44.99), not only covers what's new in Dreamweaver CS3, but includes lessons that provide essential Dreamweaver CS3 information and training for anyone creating rich Web content. Written by Fred Gerantabee, product professional and certified Adobe trainer, along with members of the AGI training team (who have produced many of Adobe's own manuals), the comprehensive Dynamic Learning system is the equivalent of hiring your own Adobe expert.
Dynamic Learning: Dreamweaver CS3" follows "Dynamic Learning: Flash CS3 Professional" and "Dynamic Learning: Photoshop CS3," both of which have been widely praised by educators and industry experts. Every Dynamic Learning book includes a DVD with lesson files and Digital Classroom video tutorials that demonstrate some of the techniques covered in each lesson.
"Dynamic Learning: Dreamweaver CS3"includes clear explanations and demonstrations of how the software works, full-color examples, easy-to-follow instructions, and professional tips. Self-study exercises and review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the skills learned. In addition to the book and DVD, O'Reilly is also offering free downloadable guides for educators who use the books in their courses.
Topics covered include:
- What's new in Dreamweaver CS3
- Dreamweaver CS3 Jumpstart
- Creating Web sites
- Styling pages with CSS
- Working with Snippets and library items
- Using tables and frames
- Adding Flash, video, and audio content
"'Dynamic Learning: Flash CS3 Professional' was designed for creative professionals looking to expand into Flash and interactive media," says Gerantabee. "I think they'll find in it an easy, intuitive approach to mastering the basics of Flash design, animation, and interactivity. We've based each lesson on real student questions, scenarios, and points of interest, thus recreating the classroom environment in a convenient package. More than that, the lesson files and supplemental videos make it easy for people at any skill level to learn what they need to at their own pace."
