Is there a way of using some type of script to save position in an Adobe Captivate elearning course?

Hi Experts,

Just trialing Adobe Captivate 3 to produce an elearning presentation ... seems very good.

The presentation I'm producing is split into several lessons and it most likely that someone will not run through all the lessons in one visit.

Is there some way (through some type of action script - which I know nothing about!!) that I can save some type of file to hold a users progress through the course?

Rather than just go back in and have to recall that they had completeed say the first two lessons it would be useful if (having logged in?) the presentation showed their progress to date.

We do not intend at this stage to put the final product onto any type of LMS but just distribute via DVD for stand-alone use.

Thanks in advance,

As far as I know, NO, there is no way to do this.  But EMAIL Adobe about it for final confirmation about it.
