I've heard lots about the tool in recent weeks but this is the first opportunity I'd had to experiment with it. Seems like a very flexible tools to allow educators to generate their own learning content - presentations, media and interactive tools. You can output to .swf and 'interactive' .pdf (i.e. a .swf file embedded in a .pdf). Certainly something to keep a very close eye on. If Adobe get the pricing right then it could be extremely useful for all teachers.

The aspect that particularly appeals for me is that here is a tool that shows how Flash-based tools are developing beyond the core Flash application installed on a school network. We're trying to look for an online solution for all of our curricular uses of ICT and Flash is a major stumbling block. We want students to be able to continue to develop high-end skills in Flash, but this requires an installation of the core Flash application. Hopefully, if solutions like ROME are adopted, we'll see an online equivalent of Flash in the future. Something that offers the same functionality and tools for students but without the need to be tied to a local installation. This looks very promising.
