The Adobe eLearning Suite includes seven products: Captivate 4, Flash CS4 Professional with Learning Interactions, Dreamweaver CS4 with CourseBuilder Extension, Photoshop CS4 Extended, Acrobat 9 Pro, Presenter 7, and Soundbooth CS4, an audio recording and editing tool.
At the foundation of the Technical Communication Suite 2 are FrameMaker 9, a DITA-compliant tool used to author and publish technical documentation, and RoboHelp 8, a well-regarded tool used for creating knowledge bases and content for Help systems within software and on Web sites. Also included in the package are Captivate 4, Photoshop CS4, Acrobat 9 Pro Extended, and Presenter 7.
Neither package is cheap. The eLearning suite retails for about $1,800 and the Technical Communication Suite 2 goes for about $1,900, but when you consider the cost of buying each program separately, the suites end up being a good value. As with most Adobe software, you can download a trial to see if they're right for your organization.
