21  Let Me Try Simulations
When you're ready to try it yourself, you can click the Let Me Try button to bring up a full simulation of the Assistant 9 environment. Your job is to perform a task covering the current concept. You don't need to worry if you make a mistake, however, since you’ll receive feedback if you happen to go down the wrong path.
101  Web Hints

You get over 20 hours of hands-on training on publishing your applications to DHTML or Neuron, adding Flash™, SCORM, manipulating the Catalog, configuring objects, and much more. You’ll learn how to deploy your application on the web as well as via traditional methods such as CD-ROM and Local Area Network. When you think you have "mastered" Assistant, try your hand at the Certification Exams in each module, built randomly from a large question pool. You can then see your answers to each question via Student Information.

Organized in easy-to-follow sections, the training is presented one concept at a time. You can “dig deeper” to learn more about a concept by accessing Expert Information, and Web Hints. Or watch a Show Me demonstration of how to accomplish a related task. Then choose the Let Me Try option on many pages to use a complete simulation of the Assistant 9 environment to perform a representative task on your own, receiving gentle feedback when you go down the wrong path.

After you have completed the training, you will want to keep it nearby as a reference. It offers a glossary, index, full text search, list of Expert Information, and Web Hints, and personalized favorites.

  • I received the "Learning & Mastering" CBT and love it. I hope I can someday make some as well thought out and implemented. This CBT is awesome, fun and inspiring. Great job!
  • I was getting ready to start a big conversion project at the time (4 courses from Lectora to ToolBook) and was in desperate need of quick training. I was looking at either getting training from SumTotal or purchasing your CD. The CD gave me exactly what I needed to complete the course. Thanks for putting out such a great product.
  • We have found the CD a real help!
  • All of us ToolBook account managers for Click2Learn are anxious for the Instructor 2004 L&M to be released. We count on your CD for our customers who aren't able to attend a training or wish to have material for just-in-time training. Keep up the excellent work!
  • From an instructional design standpoint, I think it's a wonderful example of one school of instructional design: Laying out objectives, making sure you teach to them, using testing points along the way to make sure people are focusing on the important concepts, providing summary views, practice exercises, show me examples, along with a summative evaluation. I think there are other instructional design models, some relying upon more inferential and exploratory techniques, but I think they've chosen a very good approach given the topic. And I think they've done it in a way that works.
  • I am very new to ToolBook, and am enjoying the CD. It provides very detailed information on the tools, properties, and other things that are new to someone not experienced with CBT authoring tools.
