I've been using Macromedia Director for 20 years to build CD
training solutions. Director has all the capabilities I need to
create effective, rich training. I've watched the Flex demos, which
focus on retrieving live data and resources on the web. Can Flex be
used in a much simpler mode like the following?:
Trainee logs on (how?) to Flex training app on the web. Flex
custom app uses videos and animations stored in a folder at the
same level. An interactive quiz tracks a score and displays it
after the quiz. Flex writes the score and trainee name / ID to a
text file of all trainee scores. Flex can report to managers on :
who scored what, how many people failed, which questions were
failed by how many people, etc. (i.e. standard training info).
I hate browser environments... they're too limiting and
limited, and the interface is cluttered with File Edit View, etc
which have nothing to do with the training are therefore are
distracting. My CDs use fullscreen with only the elements I choose
on-screen... no clutter. So...
Can Flex create an app which mimics a Director executable on
a CD, but runs over the web?
Any advice gratefully received.
regards, David, Ottawa
PS: And can Flex do this without the nauseating Loading
Loading Loading Loading of Flash elements?
