CS5.5 includes new features designed to support content creation and publication for a range of high tech mobile devices including ebooks, tablets and mobile phones.
(PRWEB UK) 17 October 2011
From October 2011, every student enrolling on a Dreamweaver or Flash course with Home Learning College will receive a copy of Creative Suite 5.5 Web Premium (CS5.5), the latest web development software package from Adobe*. Reflecting changing trends in internet consumption, CS5.5 includes new features designed to support content creation and publication for a range of high tech mobile devices including ebooks, tablets and mobile phones.
Home Learning College offers courses in Dreamweaver and Flash – two key components of CS5.5 Web Premium – which provide a comprehensive introduction to the main functions of these highly popular creative tools. Designed for complete beginners and those with existing web development skills, the courses teach students to get the most from these powerful applications. Because all Home Learning College courses are delivered by distance learning, individuals progress at their own pace and study can be combined with existing work, family and social commitments.
CS5.5 represents a significant evolution from earlier versions and responds to shifting consumer demands and the needs of industry professionals. The updated version of web development application Dreamweaver includes a preview screen where multiple content versions can be viewed simultaneously, allowing content producers to assess how pages will appear on different devices.
Dreamweaver CS5.5 also includes support for CSS3, the latest WebKit engine updates and HTML5. PhoneGap integration allows the easy creation of content for iPhone, iPad, Blackberry and Android apps, while jQuery support makes it simple to create web applications for mobile and desktop technologies.
Flash Professional CS5.5 is a highly popular authoring environment for producing interactive content. The software allows developers to create consistently engaging environments across multiple platforms such as desktops, tablets, smart phones and televisions. This latest version features new sharing functionality across documents and devices, content scaling which allows media to be re-sized for any screen size or resolution, enhanced layer control and new tooling options.
“The use of smart phones, tablets and other internet-enabled devices has exploded in the past 12 months,” says Dave Snow, Academic Director at Home Learning College. “Modern web developers must ensure content can be accessed as easily and effectively through these channels as via a PC or Mac computer. The ability to use Dreamweaver and Flash is a necessity for anyone wishing to develop a successful career in web development, and CS5.5 represents a welcome update to this enduringly popular software package. This is why we have invested in ensuring our students receive the very latest software, while many other training providers continue to provider earlier versions.
“Our Dreamweaver and Flash distance learning courses come with expert tutorial support and access to our online Virtual Learning Community. This means that students can access all the guidance and assistance they need to become proficient web development professionals.”
