[MD1] "Teach!" version 4


Acrux Software announces "Teach!" version 4. Price reductions and new
features added to Mac-only multi-media authoring program.

(Amsterdam, Netherlands, April 9 1998)--Acrux Software, a provider of
Macintosh educational software and courseware, today announced the release
of version 4 of "Teach!": a Mac-only multi-media authoring toolkit
specifically designed for the education community.

Teach! was recently rated as "excellent" in an "About This Particular Mac"
review, and earned 4 out of 5 mouse points in a MacUser UK review - and
both reviews were based on the previous version of the program!

Version 4 includes many improvements to the program's user interface. Most
noticable are the "pop-up palettes" (inspired by the pop-up windows in Mac
OS 8). These palettes "pop-up" when you click on one of their titles, which
the program keeps neatly arranged along the bottom of the screen. Normally,
only one palette is visible at a time. This keeps the screen uncluttered
when you're designing courseware, yet at the same time gives the designer
instant access to as many palettes as required. And the new on-line guide
palettes ensure that help, instructions and draggable examples are never
more than a couple of mouse-clicks away.

Other changes:

* the main design palette is now customizable; choose between large or
small, buttons or pop-up menus
* contextual menus have been adopted
* contextual tips appear to guide each user through certain operations
* it's much easier to set up timings and connections
* tests can now be designed to put questions in a random order
* the program can be used for full-screen and slide-show type presentations

In fact Teach! is becoming so versatile that it's rapidly growing into a
great general-purpose multi-media tool, but with the accent still on
education. And it remains largely free: the freeware "Lite" version can be
used not just to run ready-made courses, but also to design and save
courses of up to 25 pages. Teach! Lite can be downloaded directly from:

(ftp://ftp.acruxsoft.com/pub/teach/Teach!_Lite.bin) (3.8mb, MacBinary)
(ftp://ftp.acruxsoft.com/pub/teach/Teach!_Lite.hqx) (5.2mb, BinHex)

Prices and Availability:

Teach! v4 is available directly from Acrux Software and through several US
distributors. See our Web site (http://www.acruxsoft.com) for more details.

The suggested retail price for a single-user license supplied on CD is now
just $79 ($99 with a printed manual). But it can also be purchased for
electronically for just $69 from Software Unboxed (http://www.unboxed.com).

There are special deals for educational users, including a $399 educational
site license (valid for up to 30 school+home computers).

About "Teach!":

The Teach! program is an imaginative, fresh new look at how to best utilize
the power of the Apple Macintosh for educational purposes. It's all about
using and creating courseware for learning - talking books, quizzes,
questionnaires, surveys, tutorials, full "electronic textbooks", or just
fun full-screen multi-media presentations. And by combining synthesized
speech, visual effects, sounds, movies and other multi-media elements, you
can make courseware which is informative, compelling, engaging - in a
nutshell: educational!

Acrux Software remains committed to providing the most effective
educational multi-media tools for the Macintosh platform. The Teach!
program is in continuous development, and registered users are entitled to
free Web-based updates for one year from the date of purchase.
