Authorware, the company, is now part of Macromedia, 600 Townsend Street, 310 West, San Francisco, CA, 94103. They can give you information and prices on Authorware Professional, the software. It was pricey when we bought a few years ago, around $600, I seem to recall, for the basic kit, with add-ons, like audio and video drivers, bringing the price closer to $1000. We find that our students can get started after about a 2-hour workshop, and can become reasonably proficient at the end of an 11-week quarter. However, it is a sophisticated package when you explore all its ins and outs. (Funnily, though, I think its easier to learn than Toolbook.) Bill WInn firstname.lastname@example.org
