OVERVIEW: I am a high school teacher in Costa Rica, Central
America. I am producing a series of lessons in Spanish on using
Microsoft Office applications. These lessons are being produced
using Camtasia Studio 4 in swf format. The lessons are to be
distributed to students on a CD to be viewed on "public" computers
(school, work, Internet Cafe) where no files can be uploaded to the
The minimum system available to the students is:
Windows 95 or better
166mHz Pentium processor
16-bit color SVGA display card
4x CD-ROM drive
REQUIREMENT: I need to include on the CD a custom viewer that
will run from the CD and allow the student to view the lessons.
This viewer has to be a fixed custom size (small enough to fit in
the corner of the screen so that the student can view the lesson
and make entries on the application, such as Excel). The viewer has
to "stay on top" so that the student can make entries in the
application without the viewer disappearing. The viewer also has to
be customized with DVD/VHS type buttons like PLAY, PAUSE, BACK,
FORWARD with the buttons labeled in Spanish.
PLATFORM: Windows 95 through XP.
I am not a programmer. I have talked to several programmers
about creating this viewer in Zinc and mProjector and I am told
that these programs create applications that required high speed
CPU's and a lot of memory. Several have recommended Director
because it can be used to create an application that will run on
lower level computers.
I have a lot of students who want to learn. The lessons I
have created are good and I need a way to deliver them to the
students. Is there someone out there who is a Director programmer
who would be interested in contributing their knowledge and
expertise to help with this project?
