Adobe Authorware which was previously known as Macromedia Authorware is a graphical programming language which is interpreted and based on flowcharts. Authorware helps in the development of interactive programs integrating a number of multimedia content to create electronic educational technology applications. The unique feature of this authoring tool is its flowchart construction architecture which is different from other such tools based on visual stage and timeline scripting structures. The authoring environment of Authorware provides rich interactions and complex feed-back capabilities which lead to various forms of user feedback such as move object to, along a line, click an object or hot spot and more such features. The power of this authoring tool comes from its roots in the pedagogical models which have their base in the constructivist views. Authorware works by using flow-lines which define the structure of the developer’s program and can be used to develop interactivity and navigational elements along with text, graphics, animations and other media. Authorware programs have the capability of being distributed as stand-alone files or over the web which requires an Authorware Web player.
