Currently we're working on a Computer Based Training project and our constraints are:
(1) Running on Win3.1 & Win95 platform
(2) Able to support intranet(Win95 platform)
(3) Able to support Lotus ScreenCam
(4) Short learning time thus learning curve mustn't be too     steep
(5) Hardware requirements: minimnum 486, 16MB RAM
-----------------------------------------------------------
Our main concern is to be able to deploy to Intranet easily.
Thus, which of the following suits the requirement most.
(1) Multimedia Toolbook
(2) Authorware
(3) Director

It is important to specify the version of the software.

Thank a lot!

This is going to be a very general answer for lack of info on
what your project is going to consist of.

Multimedia Toolbook will have shortest learning curve between Macromedia's Director 6 and Asymetrix' Toolbook 3 or 4.

I would use Toolbook 3.0 simply because that version should be
available used, thus cheaper.  The program Authorware from Macromedia would probably be too limited for your needs.  

As for Lotus ScreenCam, I am not familiar with it, but I am sure that any of the programs will be able to handle the output for I assume that uses a standard output format.

Hi!

Thank for your answer. However, I would need to clarify somemore things with you if possible.

You've compared the learning curve between Director and Toolbook. How about comparing between Toolbook and Authorware?

Also you mentioned that Authorware from would probably be too limited for my needs. What do you mean by that? Please explain it to me if you can.

Thank alot once more.
