A recent post on Journet (top item), an AEJMC listserv, sought recommendations for a Dreamweaver 8 book for a Web design course.
Nancy Cornwell at Linfield College recommended books by Peachpit Press, in particular Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide by Tom Negrino and Dori Smith, 2005.
Cornwell wrote that "it does a good job of covering DW basics but doesn't get into design issues." For that, she uses Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability by Steve Krug; online resources by Jakob Nielsen and webmonkey.com; and the "classic," The Design of Everyday Things by Donald Norman.
Another contribution came from Mindy McAdams, Knight chair at the University of Florida. Her class handout is at left.
