[MD1] Macromedia Announces CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver

For Immediate Release

MACROMEDIA ANNOUNCES COURSEBUILDER FOR DREAMWEAVER, THE SOLUTION FOR
AUTHORING WEB-NATIVE LEARNING CONTENT

Macromedia CourseBuilder Extends Dreamweaver 3 to Enable Rapid Creation of
Online Learning Applications by Both Programmers and Non-Programmers

San Francisco, California Dec. 1, 1999 Macromedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: MACR)
today announced Macromedia(R) CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver(TM), a powerful
extension application to Dreamweaver 3 for creating interactive Web-based
learning applications. CourseBuilder enables professional Web developers
and subject matter experts to quickly and cost-effectively author engaging
training content in a visual environment, without requiring programming
knowledge.

Online learning is becoming critical in corporate environments, where
improved learning, knowledge sharing and cost savings are driving
implementations, said Pat Brogan, vice president of educational marketing
for Macromedia. CourseBuilder provides an intuitive way to unlock
intellectual capital within a corporation by empowering knowledge workers
to easily share information.

Dreamweaver is Macromedias market-leading professional Web authoring
environment. CourseBuilder, formerly Attain Objects for Dreamweaver,
extends the functionality of Dreamweaver with more than 40 pre-built
learning interactions including easily-editable multiple choice, true or
false and fill-in-the-blank questions and answers. As an extension
application, CourseBuilder benefits from Dreamweaver 3s visual programming
interface, open architecture, and support for Web standards. The
CourseBuilder interactions, built using HTML and JavaScript, create
Web-native content which allows courses to be delivered in most browsers on
both Windows and Macintosh platforms.

"CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver is a terrific way to deploy Web-based
learning content online," said Brandon Hall, an independent analyst who
tracks the online learning market. "Non-technical users to seasoned Web
developers can all deliver professional-looking learning content that meets
the needs of academic environments and large corporations. The Dreamweaver
platform is the number one authoring environment that I recommend to
customers."

"CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver allows me to quickly create engaging, highly
interactive online training, said Betsy Bruce, senior developer at
MediaPro Inc. Users of the training we create love the interactivity. And
because Dreamweaver and CourseBuilder produce content in standard Web
formats, delivery is as simple as opening a browser.

CourseBuilder empowers non-technical subject matter experts to focus on
their area of expertise, rather than programming. Web developers can also
use CourseBuilder to quickly add various types of surveys and user
interaction to their Web sites. In addition to the pre-built interactions,
CourseBuilder also includes Action Manager and Knowledge Track features.
The Action Manager provides a visual interface for adding interactivity and
sophisticated logic to learning content. Knowledge Track enables a variety
of information, including student progress and test scores, to be sent
directly to an instructional management system, such as the Lotus Pathware
learning management system. For developers designing distance learning
courses, building in tracking of students interactions provides a critical
link between students activities and their instructors.

Lotus Development Corp. purchased the Pathware system from Macromedia in
July and both companies are jointly developing, marketing and distributing
technologies for Web-based learning. As part of the agreement, Lotus
distributes Macromedia's industry-leading Authorware(R) , Director(R),
CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver, Fireworks(R), and Flash authoring products.
In addition, Lotus licensed Macromedia's Shockwave, Flash, and Authorware
Web Player technology for use with Lotus and IBM products. Lotus will make
CourseBuilder available as part of Lotus Professional Authoring and Web
Authoring Suites.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver is expected to ship this month for both
Windows and Macintosh platforms. CourseBuilder will be available as a free
upgrade to owners of the Attain Objects for Dreamweaver or Dreamweaver
Attain who upgrade to Dreamweaver 3. CourseBuilder for Dreamweaver is
priced at $199, with discounts available for education and government
customers. A bundle including Dreamweaver 3 and CourseBuilder is also
available for $499.
