Macromedia teams with WebCT.

Macromedia has announced partnerships with course management system provider 2WebCT and MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching), a clearinghouse of learning objects. Macromedia Dreamweaver and Macromedia Captivate have been integrated into the entire WebCT product line, enabling users to create e-learning simulations in WebCT. With Dreamweaver, WebCT faculty, staff, and students can design web pages, sites, and courses, and immediately publish all content to WebCT as a module. This eliminates the need for users to move each file individually. With Macromedia Captivate, users can record onscreen activity and create interactive simulations in the Macromedia Flash format without knowing how to use the Flash authoring tool.

Macromedia and MERLOT will work together to strengthen MERLOT's online academic communities and extend communication with its membership base. MERLOT is using Contribute 3 to build a set of internet portals and launch a monthly electronic newsletter. It is also a key element of the new Macromedia Web Publishing System.
