Chen, Jun; Wang, Zu-Yuan; Wu, Yuren
Interactive Technology and Smart Education, v6 n4 p268-273 2009
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to introduce some new functions achieved in a web-based multimedia courseware, which is developed by Flash software and used by part-time graduate students. Design/methodology/approach: The courseware uses Adobe Flash CS3 as its development software, which supports Actionscript language, FMS and FLV technology as well. Findings: The courseware developed by Flash can meet the needs of students because of its high speed and interaction in network. Practical implications: Some part-time graduate students have already used this courseware system. Compared with the traditional online courseware, students like this kind of courseware more for its humanized interface. It is no more a question to achieve internet face-to-face conversation and streaming media play because Flash supports FMS and FLV technology. Originality/value: The paper summarizes experiences in using Flash to develop a web-based multimedia courseware and it is valuable to those who intend to develop an educational platform for teaching and training.
