This section of the website contains practical and straightforward materials to help you create your own materials using the Macromedia Studio MX 2004 suite.
Macromedia Studio MX suite
Complete the training sessions that show you how to create a basic department website using the Studio MX 2004 tools.

The idea of these sessions is to help anyone develop the basic skills by actually creating something yourself - follow the guidance and information and you'll be amazing yourself within a hour or so...

I am in the process of updating this section - it currently covers Studio MX 2004, but all of this guidance also applies to Flash 8. Later this academic year I will create a series of tutorials - both links to others and materials on this site - so fellow teachers can learn to use these tools.

For any specific requests, please do join the EffectiveICT.co.uk forum and post them there.
